Meudon

Sep 15 - Sep 1, 2014

À propos de l'exposition

Two huge videos, 30 hours of sound, two huge red sofas in André Bloc’s Habitacle, Meudon. An original space where the galerist Natalie Seroussi presents an unique multimedia performance of the world famous artist, Phill Niblock : "Meudrone THIR".


The spectator is deeply immersed in a both visual and sonorous experience. Creating a place of meditation.


These works, realized especially for this exhibition space by Phill Niblock, are directly inspired by the flora surrounding the site, and demonstrate the artist capacity to use and to mix music, videos and photography.


Born in Indiana in 1933, Phill Niblock, since the middle of the sixties, is specialized in the realization of multimedia performances. Mostly known for his minimalist compositor talents, he presents simultaneously during his concerts movies showing the movement of working persons or abstract pictures.


Phill Niblock is the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation since 1985. During his carreer, he realized more than 1000 performances, was the conservator of the novative XI Records label, and launched a second EI Space in Ghent, Belgium.


Phill Niblock has just been awarded the John Cage Price in 2014.
