For her contribution to the Young Belgian Art Prize exhibition in BOZAR Brussels Hana Miletić sought a way to share the space and time resources of an art institution. In addition to the series of daily live poetry readings from the book « Tenir Paroles » (APE #046) that is based on song lyrics by fka La Frénétick, the collective of young rappers from Brussels that Miletić has been working with since 2012, she made an audio-recording of fka La Frénétick performing in BOZAR’s Chamber Music Room. This recording will be released as a single (APE #059) and presented to the public during a live performance at the closing event of the exhibition on Thursday 10 September.
Miletić proposed to fka La Frénétick to co-create a new repertoire of songs in which their narratives could intertwine. One of the fruits of this collaboration is one of the rap songs on the single, « 15 ans » that is based on Françoise Mallet-Joris’ – fka Françoise Lilar – poem « Chanson de mes 15 ans » from 1947. Miletić introduced Mallet-Joris’ poetry to fka La Frénétick because they both began writing verses at 15 years old, albiet in a very different Brussels.
Recorded live in the Chamber Music Room of the Centre for Fine Arts Brussels (BOZAR) during the summer of 2015 within the framework of Tenir Paroles, Hana Miletic’s contribution to the Young Belgian Art Prize.
