GROUP SHOW LP
Erik Kessels

Price : 25€ €

Group Show is a project and installation that shows an extensive collection of ‘vernacular’ vinyl records with large groups of people on the cover. The awkward impossibility of photographing these choirs, regional ensembles and folklore bands and the typology of photographs that has comes out of it, is a longtime fascination for Erik Kessels. It even made him create a multi-media project out of this. The enormous volume and collection of records resulted in an eclectic soundtrack, and an impressive installation that is a combination of the two. The work is a representation of the renaissance of imagery we live in nowadays and the clutter of impulses and information that flood us on a daily basis. It’s also a celebration of like-minded beings that have found each other in their shared musical passion. 






Group Show was first shown in Saint-Claire church in Vevey, Switzerland in September 2018. Go here to hear and see.
