JANDEK AT MOTELSALIERI

February 15, 2012

Performance and exhibition by the mysterious musician

  • Text by Luca Lo Pinto

This Sunday will be a special day for those who love to be surprised in their life. The person who will make this happen is called Jandek. 



Who is Jandek, the artist? 
There were moments one even doubted his existence. He releases albums through his own record label Corwood Industries and is seen as an atypical folk and blues singer. Jandek is taking care of all the writing, composing, singing and the art on the covers himself. Many of his albums feature pictures of a certain man at various ages. Although it seemed likely, it was not until Jandek's live debut in Glasgow 2004, that it became certain that the man depicted on the album covers was the principal performer. Jandek now often performs live with other musicians, but these collaborations remain the extent of his engagement with the public. A choice of the photographs of his LP covers will be shown at Motel Salieri until February 23. Selected and printed from their original negatives by Jandek himself, there are 5 copies of a series of 7 pictures.

Opening Sunday February 19 h.6pm
