Artist Jim Hobbs teams up with Kinski for A Clear Day and No MemoriesPosted by Allen Huang
Local post-rock noiseniks Kinski and London-based visual artist Jim Hobbs are coming together in a torrent of local architecture, gothic ambiance and nostalgia-induced ennui. The project is called A Clear Day and No Memories, and promises to present the viewer with an “ever-shifting sense of place – one that is never the same twice.” It involves multiple 16 mm film projections, vinyl recordings, and the Puget Sound.
The installation will open tonight, Friday December 3rd, at 7pm at the Jack Straw New Media Gallery at 43rd and Roosevelt. Next Tuesday, December 7th, the gallery will feature a conversation between the artists involved in the project and moderated by Robin Held, Chief Deputy Director of the Frye Art Museum. They have also prepared an accompanying album for the project, featuring stills from the visual presentation as well as two new pieces from Kinski.
