Jérôme Grivel residency

The French artist Jérôme Grivel will begin a four-week residency at 7 Garden Street on May 1st 2011.

His practice explores the problematic of sound and its reception by the spectator. His work is voluntarily physical, aggressive and even violent, drawing its inspiration from the artistic culture of the 1970s and the functions and principles of noise. This music, born of an underground culture, assumes from the moment of its production the effect it has on listeners. The work is about taking spectators somewhere, whether they appreciate that or not. It’s about saturating spaces, producing a physical implication in that space in order to confront better the elements which surround us.
