other events of my work, but where i will not be present:

Nuit Blanche, Paris France

La Maison des Métallos in the Nuit Blanche, Paris Fr, October 5 2013
A twelve hour exhibition of the Movement of People Working films and music by Phill Niblock (six images and immersive sound). 7pm to 7am


Two huge videos, 30 hours of sound, two huge red sofas in André Bloc’s Habitacle, Meudon. An original space where the galerist Natalie Seroussi presents an unique multimedia performance of the world famous artist, Phill Niblock : Meudrone THIR. The spectator is deeply immersed in a both visual and sonorous experience. Creating a place of meditation.

These works, realized especially for this exhibition space by Phill Niblock, are directly inspired by the flora surrounding the site, and demonstrate the artist capacity to use and to mix music, videos and photography.

Born in Indiana in 1933, Phill Niblock, since the middle of the sixties, is specialized in the realization of multimedia performances. Mostly known for his minimalist compositor talents, he presents simultaneously during his concerts movies showing the movement of working persons or abstract pictures.

Phill Niblock is the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation since 1985. During his carreer, he realized more than 1000 performances, was the conservator of the novative XI Records label, and launched a second EI Space in Ghent, Belgium.
This installation on Sunday afternoons, can be visited by appointement during the year. Click here to contact the Galerie Natalie Seroussi.

I wrote a short preview of your Eyebeam show in the Wall Street Journal today (Oct 2), in print in the section “Greater New York” and online here:
