THIS EVENT IS DOWNSTAIRS!
Résonances is an event merging live visual art and musical performance. It is curated by artist Aurelie Freoua. This one has the theme of Dreams. “A dream is the fulfilment of a wish” (Sigmund Freud)
For this event, Aurelie brings together a diverse group of musicians and artists around the theme of ‘Dreams’. Performers include musicians Zac Gvi, Dave O’Brien, percussionist Maurizio Ravalico, and Korean flautist Hyelim Kim, artists Ley Loosh and Gwen Heddle, poet Mervin Scott, dancer Petra Haller, balloon animateurs Atomik Bubbles (Keyo and Tom).
Over the past two years, she collaborated more and more with improvising musicians, creating music and art simultaneously with the musicians and artists using similar sonic and visual approach. She has also designed covers for albums by Raph Clarkson, Paulo Duarte and Henrik Jensen. In September 2018, her mural in Shoreditch, Misterioso, was the backdrop for The Dancing Wall, a performance merging art, dance and musicians. Aurélie says: “Painting is my way to express my ideas, to conceptualise my analysis and describe my perception of the world. Through my work, I try to question and study the notion of invisible. My intention is to catch the instant, extract the poetry and transcribe the indefinable and implicit emotions by giving them a visual dimension, a shape, a colour, a movement, a direction and by playing with contrasts and light. Our precious emotions become visible, almost palpable and their intensity can stay alive. In my abstract paintings, I attempt to create a rhythm and harmony making forms, lines and light sing and resonate all together.”
