Generally classified as perhaps David Lynch’s finest moment, Mullholland Drive is one of the defining films of the 90’s. The oblique masterpiece is purposefully hard to interpret and if you fail to grasp the plot, the meaning or get your head around the sudden about turn that comes half way through the film, you can still enjoy it as a series of stunning set pieces. One of these is scenes takes place at the ‘Club Silenco’, a sleazy cabaret with a sinister atmosphere and illusionary performances that somehow have a bearing on the characters. (If you have not seen the film, we are afraid that this is not the place for us to try and explain)
Now the director is opening a real life counterpart underneath the Social Club in Paris on the Rue Montmartre The real ‘Club Silenco’ will feature a bar, library, cinema and concert hall. Apparently Lynch has had a hand in designing all aspects of the club from the deco to the ceiling. Speaking to the New York Times he explained how “I enjoy how architecture and design create mood.”
We’re booking tickets to Paris right about…. now
‘Liquorice’ is an upcoming exhibition at Berlin-based gallery Schau Fenster, where music and art come together. On Friday, January 14th, the exhibition opens in Kreuzberg, and features the work of artist Sonja Jovanovic-Greiner and music by Martin Stimming.
The 13 paintings, which were created for this show by Sonja JG, express the artist’s feelings of when she first heard the music album ‘Liquorice’ from Martin Stimming in the middle of January 2010. Through these paintings and the 13 tracks the main emotion of their works – pain – will be discussed and shown in different facets and states.
The two artists will present an audio-visual artwork that will let viewers experience the symbiosis of art and music. The album ‘Liquorice’ is to be released Feb 2011 on Diynamic Music.
