Galerie Eric Mouchet is delighted to present Rémi Dal Negro’s first solo exhibition in Paris, SOMA, from 14 March to 18 April 2015, curated by Léo Marin.
A mapper of sounds and composer of sights, Rémi Dal Negro’s work contains sudden starts, breaths frozen in time and silences which mean so much more than might seem at first sight or first sound.
Much taken with the study of the inaudible and the invisible, his works generally aim to render concrete those things that are imperceptible.
A Gyro Gearloose for the times we live in, Rémi Dal Negro uses modern technology to create another way of connecting with the spirit of a place or the voice of a city.
In this way, when Rémi Dal Negro replaces the cords of a clothes dryer with strips of EPDM (rubber), to the end of which he attaches devices that can ‘read’ vibrations, he creates a musical instrument which will play at the whim of the seasons and the elements.This produces a raw meteorological audio recording – something like a modern version of Vivaldi’s Le quattro stagioni.
SOMA will feature highly-innovative preparatory drawings as well as a one-off piece, specially created by Rémi Dal Negro for this exhibition.
SOMA is organized in sequential fashion, plunging the visitor into the artist’s subconscious, inviting them to explore the various stages of the origins of his creations.
Du 14 Mars au 18 Avril 2015
