General 54 is participating for the first time in Montreal’s assault on the February blues, the all-night party known as “Nuit Blanche”, this year held Saturday February 27th.
Our “Nuit Blanche” event “What does not belong in a boutique” is a two parter starting at 7pm with a vernissage for Jeremy Gordaneer’s “Painting Small Things” series, a collections of 6”x8” paintings of objects like sparkplugs and metal fixtures. Later in the evening there will be a performance by Les Momies de Palerme, whose music has been described as “Vangelis on nightmare pills”. We are really looking forward to both!
As usual, there will be drinks, snacks, and other fun! More info below:
Jeremy Gordaneer: For many years the central focus in Gordaneers’s art has been exploring different ways to ground into being the idea of a continuum. The age old idea that everything is connected—that there is no space between any thing has been reinvigorated today by explorations into Quantum physics. He takes the traditional dichotomies of painting and sculpture, figure/ground, background/foreground, and subverts them in order to create an interesting new pictorial space more in keeping with the contemporary world. Beginning with painting, then moving towards a more three dimensional sculptoral approach, Gordaneer now often combines the two mediums. The inclusion of found objects gives the viewer an entry point to the work as well as calling into question scale and meaning. www.jeremygordanneer.com
Les Momies De Palerme from FIMAV site: Marie Davidson et Xarah Dion sont des filles douées dont les spectacles sont toujours surprenants, une virée dans leur monde expérimental et sonore. Spooky minimalist chamber-synthscapes that will give your brain goose bumps.
