Andrea Spreafico
Poor Dictionary (From Distance to Rage)

Andrea Spreafico, Poor Dictionary (From Distance to Rage). All photos by Bent René Synnevåg.

The piece on our window is made by Lewis & Taggart. Their collage developes alongside events led by Andrea, corresponding to the lemmas Distance, Handwritten Notes, Quotes, and Rage. Here seen in stage 1.

October 23, 2022
Andrea Spreafico at Entrée

This autumn Entrée extends our opening hours and functions as a library on the subject of writing. Writing has perhaps never been so present in everyday life as it is right now, a preferred tool for communication on the many social platforms via smartphones, laptops, comment sections, feedback reviews..., and even so, the reflection about writing is not growing at the same pace.

With Poor Dictionary Andrea Spreafico initiates an open and plural conversation about the conditions of writing. Visitors are welcome to contribute and spend time to read, write, re-write, copy, demand new acquisitions, listen to records, argue and discuss (coffee and tea is also served!). The pages of the library’s items will be used as a space for handwritten exchange and confrontation, where people can freely share their comments or comment on other people's comments.

This common conversation about the essence of writing will happen both directly, in the form of conversations, and indirectly, in the form of written contributions or suggested bibliography. Visitors can extend the library’s catalog, participate in the scheduled events and bring new written reflections or add lemmas; the collection will continuously grow throughout the fall.

The artist duo Lewis & Taggart has been invited to create a special window design for the library. Their collage will develop alongside four events led by Andrea, which are corresponding to four lemmas, on the following dates:

Lemma on Distance, Saturday, September 3, 6pm and Sunday, September 11, 12 pm (PDF here)
Lemma on Movement (by Erlend Auestad Danielsen), Wednesday, September 14, 12pm (PDF here)
Lemma on Handwritten Notes, Saturday, October 1, 5pm (PDF here)
Lemma on Quotes, Saturday, October 8, 2pm (PDF here)
Lemma on Rage, Saturday, October 29, 2pm (PDF here)
Lemma on Orality with Ingrid Cogne, Arne Skaug Olsen and Andrea Spreafico, Saturday, November 5th, 4pm
Lemma on English, Sunday, November 13, 4pm (PDF here)

We invite you to support and contribute to the discourse Poor Dictionary is trying to develop. Contributions should aim to articulate and improve a plural reflection about the essence and implications of writing.

They can be:
a) new bibliographic suggestions for the library’s catalogue. The typewriter is in place for this goal.

b) written interactions in our books. We invite you to underline, comment or create your own index in the books. Pens, pencils and stickers are here for this.

c) new lemmas (in alphabetical order between the words Distance and Rage), written and shared on any sort of platform or medium.

Lemma = a heading indicating the subject or argument of a literary composition or annotation.

Andrea Spreafico (b. Ravenna) lives in Bergen. He studied Philosophy at the Universities of Bologna and Reims (PhD in Ethics and Aesthetics 2003-2006) and Art and Public Space at the Art Academy of Nürnberg (2006-2008). He’s the author of a book on Nietzsche’s concept of power (L’onestà dei forti, Genova, 2008) and has presented artistic works in several international venues. Since 2014 he has created performances merging theater, dance, live music and theory. His most recent works are Bad Dante Bad English Bad Opera (2022), Danced Work in Progress (2021), The October revolution took place in November (2020), We have to dress gorgeously (2019), Good Morning Milton Keynes! Oh ...it’s afternoon (2019), Footnote Number 12 (2019), Vive la Phrance (2017) and What a classic is and how it performs in (our) time. Paul McCarthy, Rocky, 1976 (2015). He is an associate professor in performative art (officially DAV) at Bergen School of Architecture.

Opening hours of Poor Dictionary is Wed-Sun, 12-18
Entrée, Markeveien 4b, 5012 Bergen

The flexible exhibiton space for Entrée 2022 program is designed by artist Magnhild Øen Nordahl.

// Norsk //

Denne høsten utvider Entrée åpningstidene og tar rollen som et bibliotek med fokus på emnet skriving. Skriving har kanskje aldri vært så til stede i hverdagen som det er akkurat nå, som et foretrukket verktøy for kommunikasjon på de mange sosiale plattformene via smarttelefoner, laptoper, i kommentarfelt, anmeldelser ..., likevel har ikke refleksjonen rundt skriving utviklet seg i samme tempo.

Med Poor Dictionary (fattig ordbok) innleder Andrea Spreafico en åpen samtale om vilkårene for å skrive. Besøkende er velkomne til å bidra og bruke tid i galleriet til å lese, skrive, skrive om, kopiere, foreslår nye ervervelser til biblioteket, lytte til plater, krangle og diskutere (det serveres også kaffe og te!). Sidene til bibliotekets bøker kan bli brukt som et rom for håndskrevne utvekslinger og konfrontasjoner, der folk fritt kan dele sine kommentarer eller kommentere andres kommentarer.

Denne sosiale samtalen om essensen av skriving vil skje både direkte, i form av samtaler, og indirekte, i form av skriftlige bidrag eller foreslått bibliografi. Besøkende kan utvide bibliotekets katalog, delta i de planlagte arrangementene og ta med nye skriftlige refleksjoner eller legge til lemmas (= en overskrift som angir emnet eller argumentet til en litterær komposisjon eller kommentar); samlingen vil kontinuerlig vokse utover høsten.

Kunstnerduoen Lewis & Taggart er invitert til å lage et spesielt vindusdesign for biblioteket. Collagen deres vil utvikle seg sammen med fire arrangementer ledet av Andrea, som tilsvarer fire lemmas, på følgende datoer:

Lemma - Avstand, lørdag 3. september kl. 18 (PDF her)
Lemma - Avstand, søndag 11. september kl. 12 
Lemma  - Bevegelse (av Erlend Auestad Danielsen), onsdag 14. september kl. 12 (PDF her)
Lemma - Håndskrevne notater, lørdag 1. oktober kl. 17 (PDF her)
Lemma - Sitater, lørdag 8. oktober kl. 14 (PDF her)
Lemma - Raseri, lørdag 29. oktober kl. 14 (PDF her)
Lemma - Muntlighet, med Ingrid Cognengrid Cogne, Arne Skaug Olsen og Andrea Spreafico, lørdag 5. november kl.16
Lemma - Engelsk, søndag 13. november kl.16 (PDF her)

Vi inviterer deg til å bidra til diskursen som Poor Dictionary prøver å utvikle. Bidrag bør ta sikte på å artikulere og forbedre en refleksjon om essensen og implikasjonene av skriving.

De kan være:
a)     Nye bibliografiske forslag til bibliotekets katalog. Skrivemaskinen er på plass for dette formålet.

b)     Skriftlige interaksjoner i bøkene. Vi inviterer deg til å understreke, kommentere eller lage din egen indeks i bøkene. Penner, blyanter og klistremerker er her for å brukes til det.

c)     Nye lemmas (i alfabetisk rekkefølge mellom ordene Distance og Rage), skrevet og delt på alle slags plattformer eller medium.

Åpningstidene til Poor Dictionary er onsdag – søndag kl. 12-18

Andrea Spreafico (f. Ravenna) bor i Bergen. Han studerte filosofi ved universitetene i Bologna og Reims (PhD i etikk og estetikk 2003-2006) og kunst og offentlig rom ved kunstakademiet i Nürnberg (2006-2008). Han er forfatter av en bok om Nietzsches maktbegrep (L’onestà dei forti, Genova, 2008) og har presentert verk på flere internasjonale arenaer. Siden 2014 har han laget forestillinger som kombinerer teater, dans, levende musikk og teori. Hans siste verk er Bad Dante Bad English Bad Opera (2022), Danced Work in Progress (2021), The October revolution took place in November (2020), We have to dress gorgeously (2019), Good Morning Milton Keynes! Oh ...it’s afternoon (2019), Footnote Number 12 (2019), Vive la Phrance (2017) og What a classic is and how it performs in (our) time. Paul McCarthy, Rocky, 1976 (2015). Han er førsteamanuensis i performativ kunst (offisielt DAV) ved Bergen Arkitekthøgskole.

In the library you can listen to records. The current selection is handpicked by Peter Meanwell, to correspond to the first lemma on Distance.
