“Sonic” è uno sguardo sugli ultimi 15 anni dell’archivio musicale di Hedi Slimane, da Londra a New York, con particolare attenzione al ciclo Californiano iniziato da Hedi nel 2007, lo stesso ciclo che ha dato vita alla mostra “California Song” al MOCA di Los Angeles nel 2011.

I ritratti in studio di Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Amy Winehouse e Brian Wilson sono affiancati a quelli di membri della scena alternativa di Londra e quella californiana.

Una selezione tratta da “Sonic” sarà in mostra alla Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent a Settembre 2014. Hedi Slimane è rappresentato dalla galleria Almine Rech.

Il progetto sarà completato da una video installazione, che contrapponendo i cicli musicali di Londra (2003-2007) e quello Californiano (2007-2014) in uno stile documentaristico, tracciano un ritratto alternativo di due generazione di musicisti e fan.

“Sonic” takes a look at 15 years of Hedi Slimane’s musical archives, from London to New York, with particular focus on the Californian cycle begun in 2007, from which came “California Song”, an exhibition held at the MOCA / Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in November 2011.

The studio portraits – of Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Amy Winehouse and Brian Wilson – stand alongside those of alternative scenes from London or California.

An extract from “Sonic” will be exhibited at the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent in September 2014. Hedi Slimane is represented by the Almine Rech Gallery.
