UNTITLED NEW YORK (2016) began as a personal pilgrimage to iconic sites of the 1960s and 1970s art and music scene in New York City, such as Hotel Chelsea, Warhol’s Factory, The Dakota, and dusty record shops. In a presentation context, a projection of slides taken during the trip and a sound element, consisting of covers that I play on the guitar, are arranged to create an oneiric atmosphere. The musical selection corresponds to the sites investigated - this is where John Lennon lived, Bob Dylan hung out there. Originating from a musical ritual already in place for several years, the songs that are played and recorded are thematically linked by tragedy and loss. I intervene in the image/sound space regularly in order to extend the creation process into the exhibition space.
