envoy enterprises is pleased to present a series of live performances and a special exhibition by video director and sound designer Edward Paul Quist (aka embryoroom) and musician and artist Derek Gruen (aka Slow Knights) as part of their one month residency in the gallery’s basement level.
Transforming envoy’s basement into a black-box mise-en-scene activated with the haunting scenographic stylings of Gruen and the metronomic flash of Quist’s video projections and soundscapes, this exhibition is the first live presentation of Quist’s feature film The Untitled and an exploration of the collaborative work between the two artists. The performance series will feature live soundtracking for recent video/film collaborations in a kinetic shifting environment.
Performance dates are every Thursday of the week from 8-10pm:
April 4th: The Untitled — Live soundtrack to film by Edward Paul Quist
April 11th: Improvised
April 18th:The Untitled II — Live soundtrack to film by Edward Paul Quist
On April 25th, Derek Gruen will host an album release party for his latest record Cosmos under the name Slow Knights.
