About this project

WHAT

It’s an art exhibition with music, and it’s a concert inside an art installation.

It’s a collaboration project between architect/video installation artist Jungwan Bae and photographer/musician Oan Kim and their respective collaborators, VJ Ari Kim from Seoul Korea, and guitar player Benoît Perraudeau, from french indie rock band Film Noir.

We are friends who like to work together because we can bring in different elements to create a sort of total sensory experience. Our ambition for this project is to tell a story through songs and images, amid a mayhem of vivid projections, colored lights, crumpled vinyl architectures and noisy soundscapes, and for the performance part we want to put the audience onstage with the musicians.

LIFE ON LOOP?

Well, it all started when we saw this old guy walking back and forth in a swimming pool for hours on end. The video Jungwan shot of that guy was the starting point of our work. We started wondering what his story was, or what it could have been, and then elaborating visually and musically on repetition, loops, etc.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

Most of it is based on the interaction between flat images projected on 3-d structures.
Inside a darkened room, video images are projected on and through clear vinyl crumbled in circular (loop) pattern make up a 6ft-high 18ft-long bent wall that hangs in the center. Imagine Richard Serra’s metal wall in clear but wrinkled form. The projected images are scattered through the different layers and sometimes seem to be floating in the air.
An other part uses a stainless-steel frame holding a screen made of rows of translucent strings attached horizontally. It looks like several harps attached together. Images projected onto the strings again take on 3-dimensional form.

WHAT DOES IT SOUND LIKE?

It’s a mix of straight forward songs and experimental sound-scapes, sometimes reminiscent of Sonic Youth, the Velvet Underground or Cold War Kids. The line up is guitar, synthesizer, drum machine and vocals.

WHERE & WHEN

The exhibition will take place at the PYO gallery in Los Angeles from October 23 to November 28 2010.
The performance will take place on October 23rd.

HOW the MONEY is USED

Airfare, shipping fees, material and fabrication, equipment rental, video making, music making, etc.
This is well over $5000 but that start would get us on spot. After $5000 the money goes down the list above. All money will go towards the exhibition.
