Event Description


At this November's Art Murmur, Johansson Projects presents Disintegrations, where technology sheds the discourse of forward progress in favor of exotic decay and hypnotic liquefaction. In this technological rebellion, synesthesia takes hold as musical albums become sculptural objects and silent films are sound waves given form.
Sébastien Lapointe, artist and DJ from Montréal, remixes calcified LPs into totemic sculptures, photographing textured album spines and mounting them onto long panels. The artist transforms mass produced vinyl into fossils of what was and tantalizing omens of what will be. Straddling nostalgia and obsolescence, Lapointe recomposes the decomposed, at once melting the senses, our sense of time and the vintage pleasures of the historical record. Andrew Benson’s hypnotic video installations create phantasmagoric landscapes that stream into the viewer’s psyche. A confluence of natural rhythm, spellbinding color and filmic appropriation, the images chase themselves through a mesmerizing sea of pixilated drift. On opening night, Benson will transform a live video feed from the gallery to mediate the evening’s nebulous passage through time.
