Sound artist Gert-Jan Prins (1961, IJmuiden) is at the centre of Club Solo’s eighth solo exhibition. This is his first solo show at an art venue. He will show a new installation that will fill an entire room, as well as a selection of works that have been exhibited at the Municipal Museum in Amsterdam, Onomatopee Project Space in Eindhoven, and other places.
While Gert-Jan Prins began his career as a drummer, his work comprises performances, sound installations, compositions, electronic circuits and collaborations with other composers, musicians and visual artists. Prins studies white noise and other sound elements through electronics and percussion instruments – media he also employs as spatial installations.
In response to Gert-Jan Prins’ work, Van Abbemuseum will exhibit Néon moderne en état de marche (1973) by French artist François Morellet (1926, Cholet) in Club Solo’s minor hall.
Each solo exhibition is accompanied by a peripheral programme. The contents of this programme are up to the artist’s choice. On Tuesday 10 May, 8.00 PM, artist Femke Herregraven will give a lecture, and there will be a performance by sound artist André Avelãs.
