Jean Pierre Muller 7x7: ColorBox and Red Show in A

                                      

 

Jean Pierre Muller 7x7: ColorBox and Red Show in A
Opening Reception | Sunday, March 6th 4 - 8PM
Regular Exhibition Hours | Wednesday - Sunday 11AM - 6PM
329 Broome Street New York, NY 10002
 
ColorBox and Red Show in A are the latest works to emerge from Jean Pierre Muller's innovative 7×7 project. 7×7 is an inter-disciplinary collaboration between Belgian artist Muller and seven musical luminaries from a variety of contemporary genres; Robert Wyatt, Archie Shepp, Nile Rodgers, Terry Riley, Sean O'Hagan, Mulatu Astatke, and Kassin. 7×7 is based on the simple principle that the seven colors of the rainbow correspond to the seven notes of the scale, the seven days of the week (and deities and planets associated with those days) and the seven chakras. Seven sound altarpieces have been created, in an edition of seven, each housing an original music by one of the seven composers. A is Red is Monday, Day of the Moon and of Diana (Robert Wyatt), B is Orange is Tuesday, Day of Mars (Archie Shepp), and so on.
 
In the summer of 2012, Muller created a full site-specific set for 7×7 at Edinburgh's Summerhall: 7x7th Street. As its name suggests, this was actually a real street with billboards, signs, small houses, ...
 
A year later, Jean Pierre Muller and Nile Rodgers created An Indigo Night in F at the same venue, an amazing show combining music, live painting and theatre. This acclaimed event was inspired by their collaboration on the 7×7-F-Indigo sound altarpiece.
 
For WhiteBox, Jean Pierre Muller will present two original shows related to 7×7: Spectrum on the main level and A Red show in A on the lower level.
 
ColorBox
 
Isaac Newton divided his color wheel in seven parts: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. White is in the central part of the diagram, because all colors of light mixed together produce white. 7×7 at WhiteBox makes complete sense.
How can we embrace diversity in a world torn by the conflict between standardization and obsession for identity? Muller wishes to pen the color box and celebrate the full spectrum of our lives in their many contradictions. Rather than taking the stance of the artist as a moralist, he embarks us on a journey through the seas of complexity and the skies of hybridity.
 
Sometimes taking a sound panoramic view on things - drawing lessons from past history, digging into the origins of words, the meaning of symbols - sometimes zooming into our most intimate obsessions, Muller utters a multi-layered cry for life, plural yet deeply personal.
 
As much a painter as a printmaker, Jean Pierre Muller also uses light, sound and interactivity to make us feel the beat of the world, the rhythm of life. The elements that Jean Pierre uses in his art reflect processes of urban evolution and the way people become connected to each other through common experiences and references. Like streets grown organically over time, these elements interact through juxtaposition and ever increasing layers of complexity and history. They also tell many intertwined stories, much like the intertwined stories of people in a street, who may not know each other but are linked through commonality of space and time.
 
Red Show in A
 
Jean Pierre, together with Robert Wyatt, one of music's greatest shamans, has expanded and deepened the rich material used for their 7×7-Red-A sound altarpiece. It is a nostalgic salute to Al-Andalusia, when Spain was under Moorish rule and religions coexisted peacefully (at least, this is the way one can dream of it today, when everything concurs to convince us we're at war with the others). The most powerful symbol of this period is the Alhambra palace in Granada. This golden age ended in 1492 with the Alhambra Decree and the expulsion of all the Jews from Spain. Al-Hamra  means the Red one, in Arabic...
 
For WhiteBox, the artist has built his own Alhambra, a red temple to house the 7×7-Red-A sound altarpiece, with meaningful columns and whispering walls (with voices by Robert Wyatt, but also Terry Riley, Archie Shepp and Nile Rodgers). Muller has adapted Kazimir Malevich's emblematic paintings of the Black Square, the Black Circle and the Black Cross into a Red Star of David, a Red Crescent and a Red Cross. These are powerful symbols to initiate a new reflection on hybridity, coexistence, expulsion... and the power of symbols.
 
Following on from the success of 7x7th Street  and An Indigo Night in F with Nile Rodgers, Spectrum and A Red Show in A represent the next stage in a truly international project of ever-growing artistic ambition and cultural resonance.
 
 
Jean Pierre Muller is a Belgian Neo-pop artist who makes vibrant assemblages using high and low forms and techniques. In his work, photography, drawing, silk-screen and painting come together and gestural and mechanical interventions meet. His collaborations with musicians offer an interactivity to his paintings, giving his audience new participatory ways of entering his world. Jean Pierre is committed to both his art practice and his role as head of the Printmaking Department at La Cambre, one of Belgium's leading schools of art and design. His work has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Saragossa, the Hanover World Fair, the Royal Festival Hall and, latterly, Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh Festival.

#makeamericagreatagain is a group exhibition of diverse media that will run during February and coincide with the initial Democratic and Republican primaries.  The exhibition’s title is culled verbatim from Donald Trump’s campaign slogan. Appropriation does not stop there, however, for #makeamericagreatagain thematically rubs up against the demagoguery prevalent in the current American social and political landscape and rhetoric espoused by primary candidates to engender fear in the American public.

The appropriated hashtag also serves as curatorial device to further expand the exhibition into social media. The exhibition-viewing public and those not physically present to see the show, will be asked to upload images or texts with the hashtag of #makamericagreatgain onto Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. These contributions will become part of the exhibition and will be interventions into existing social media sites with the same hashtag.

“ Print, in its duplication, repetition and dispersal, saturates contemporary culture. It embodies communication, demarcates economic values and archives past and present.

Perverse and pervasive, print underlies and fuels creative output from the initial stages of research to production and presentation.

In its promiscuous ubiquity, it becomes invisible - from supermarket packaging to the typography of museum labels, we stop seeing the layers of printed intent and content with the abundance of printed matter surrounding us.

This characteristic invisibility makes it a perfect lens through which to look at art practices today. How does awareness of print processes inform and influence contemporary studio practice? ”

A Red Show in Red : work in progress

 

A Red Show in A is a new and original collaborative work by neo-Pop artist, Jean Pierre Muller, and Robert Wyatt, one of music’s greatest shamans. A Red Show in A is the latest work to emerge from Jean Pierre Muller's innovative '7x7' project.

For this Red show in A, Jean Pierre, together with Robert Wyatt, has expanded and deepened the rich material used for their 7x7-Red-A sound sculpture - a nostalgic salute to Al-Andalus, when Spain was under Moorish rule and religions coexisted peacefully (at least, this is the way one can dream of it today, ten years after the invasion of Iraq). The most powerful symbol of this period is the Alhambra palace in Granada.This golden age ended in 1492 with the Alhambra Decree and the expulsion of all the Jews from Spain. Al-Hamra means the Red one, in Arabic…

Indigo Night in The List

 

Indigo Night / June 21 and 22, 2013

 

This Midsummer's Eve at Summerhall, music legend Nile Rodgers launches the first of the 7x7 series of art and music events with Indigo Night, an insider's tribute to Harlem.  

 

Nile Rodgers' reputation as a producer, songwriter and performer is second-to-none. He currently has the biggest selling record in the world with Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams and has been an artist of global standing for the past thirty years.

 

Indigo Night will feature Rodgers singing, talking and acting his way through an account of the cultural and social life of Harlem from the time of the Harlem Renaissance in the Twenties to the present day.

In addition to his musical talents, Rodgers is a consumate raconteur. He will interweave tales from his own life as told in his best-selling autobiography Le Freak and, in a pioneering duet of sound and scenography, Belgian artist  Jean Pierre Muller will create a constructivist-inspired stage set during the perfomance.

 

As Rodgers develops his theme through characteristically wry observation and innate musicality, Indigo Night will recreate the heady atmosphere of Harlem's glory days when song and dance continued well into the night.

 

Indeed, this is a rare opportunity to see a stadium-filling superstar within the intimate setting of Summerhall's Dissection Room.

 

Nile himself says of Indigo Night, 'This is my favourite project. I want us to create something unique.'

 

7x7 is an inter-disciplinary collaboration between neo-pop artist Muller and seven musical luminaries from a variety of contemporary genres; Nile Rodgers, Robert Wyatt, Mulatu Astatke, Archie Shepp, Sean O'Hagan, Kassin and Terry Riley. Following on from the success of last year's 7x7 exhibition of Muller's sound sculptures at Summerhall, Indigo Night represents the next stage in a truly international project of evergrowing artistic ambition and cultural resonance.

7x7th STREET

CITY SIRENS

2011-11-07 | Up and Coming Events



Seduced by the city, Jean Pierre Muller offers us a vision of urban life as a myriad of colour and a multitude of characters, interweaved with the lines of the cityscape. His infatuation is not to do with architecture, more “the intense congregation of human beings and their vibrancy: the one million novels that could be written; the one euro coin that has passed through a million pairs of hands”.

Clearly a lover of narrative, his show comprises, for the first time ever, an introspective look into the story of his own practice. Preparatory drawings have been uncovered, sketchbooks of newspaper clippings opened, and unseen works exposed. Along with the works and styles we know him so well for – silk-screen cities on paper, metal silhouette portraits, printed palisades – Jean Pierre will also present his latest body of work, Ulysses and the Sirens, based upon the story of Homer’s poem The Odyssey.

This show is a prelude to an upcoming solo exhibition in the UK. Furthermore, following on from his collaboration with artist Sean O’Hagan on the project Musical Paintings, Jean Pierre has worked with seven of the world’s most renowned musicians to develop his combined interests in music and painting through a series of interactive sound sculptures titled 7×7 to be launched in the UK in the summer of 2012.

THE 7×7 PAVILION

2011-10-07 | 7x7

How to create a real dialogue between the artworks and the audience? How can we ask the viewer to experience the work on several levels? 

This exchange of experience will have a chance to evolve in the 7×7 Pavilion.

The central circle will hold an installation comprised of objects, drawings and items belonging to each of the contributing artists, giving visitors to 7×7 the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the themes and narrative of the project.

From there, seven hallways will lead to seven rooms which hold each of the sound sculptures – each a secluded space so that the viewer can have an intimate relationship with the work.

Just yesterday, at the studio Nile and Jean Pierre were finalizing the letter F together in preparation for the CHIC concert to be held tonight at the Ancienne Belgique; it will be preceded by the presentation of the sound sculpture to the public. About this moving moment Nile has published , a nice text on his blog, Walking on Planet C : “… We Posed in Front Of The sculpture today. It was amazing to see and hear it completed.

Nile Rodgers, Mr Hit Machine, plays live with CHIC on Monday June 13th at 8PM.

But that’s not all! Nile and Jean Pierre Muller have created together a fantastic artwork that you will discover in sneak preview that same evening: an interactive sound sculpture, combining Jean Pierre’s art with an amazing exclusive music by Nile…

We won’t say more, except that this artwork is part of a larger project called 7×7, in which Jean Pierre Muller has worked with 7 of the world’s greatest music geniuses. Besides Nile, there is Archie Shepp, Robert Wyatt, Sean O’Hagan, Terry Riley, Mulatu and Kassin.

As a prelude to the concert, you are invited from 6.30pm for a reception at the AB Club where the work will be unveiled. Nile and Jean Pierre will be present.

AB: 110 boulevard Anspach, 1000 Bruxelles

Nile Rodgers? ‘Le Freak’, of course! But Chic is sooooo many more immortal disco hits: ‘Good Times’, ‘I Want Your Love’, ‘My Forbidden Lover’, ‘Dance Dance Dance’… Add to that the hits of Sister Sledge: ‘We Are Family’, ‘Lost In Music’, ‘The Greatest Dancer’… Diana Ross’ ‘Coming Out’, ‘Upside Down’ and Sheila’s ‘Spacer’: it’s CHIC too…. Many have called Nile the world’s most successful producer of the XXth Century: ‘Let’s Dance’ by David Bowie, ‘Like A Virgin’ by Madonna, ‘The Reflex’ by Duran Duran or ‘Original Sin’ by INXS. It’s impossible to name everyone here, but the list of his productions include hits for the B-52′s, Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, Grace Jones, Eric Clapton, Cheb Mami….

AN EVENING WITH ARCHIE SHEPP

2011-06-01 | 7x7 • B :: ARCHIE SHEPP



Meeting the great Archie Shepp, last month at Jean-Pierre’s studio in Brussels, was one of those rare moments when you know that magic is a part of our lives. The world “privilege” was particularly appropriate.

Thanks to all of you to have shared those vibrations, thank you to the fabulous Johnny Hoste who, at more than 80-year of age, has played the piano for Archie with amazing ease and talent.



Here are two extracts of Archie’s concert (merci à Annick):





Here is the photo album of the evening (merci à Frédérique, Katia et Paolo):

THE G STORY 2

2011-05-31 | 7x7 • G :: TERRY RILEY

Dear Terry,

So here they are, the first pictures of our G-Sahasrara. This was really a labour of love, and I guess you can feel it even though pictures never do justice to painting. But the details can already give you a hint of the textures and vibrations. We are talking of a silk-screen-print on MDF compressed wood painted violet, in an edition of seven + two artists’ proofs (one for you, one for me), with about 14 layers of colour (done in three parts, the work being larger than silk-screen frames, so it’s 42 frames. Each frame is washed after printing – with some variations on paper – and is used for a new colour. This means the work can never be reproduced).

Jean Pierre


Dear Jean Pierre

Thank you for this series of mails with the wonderful photos of the work in progress…it is amazing to see the work taking place on it and I come to appreciate what a monumental task it is to make each of these unique masterpieces. Thanks for sharing that…

Terry







THE G STORY 1

2011-05-30 | 7x7 • G :: TERRY RILEY

Dear Jean Pierre

I have begun some work on your project in a special non western tuning. How important to you is the actual G placement in terms of A 40-444 standard? I think my G in the non western tuning is closer to a western F# but that is where this music I am working on sounds best. When i tried to transpose it there was a loss in character. My G in this tuning is derived from a 5/4 relationship to B which is the actual fundamental tone of the system I am using. I am using a very unusual scale I designed which I call “the dream” tuning which does not use all 12 notes but in some cases there are two different versions of some of the tones. Anyway since my work will represent the realm of the 7th Chakra, this tuning best serves the mystery and non definitive nature of reality.
