LOUIS CARNELL – 111
THE ARTIST LAUNCHES A NEW CURATED SERIES OF COLLABORATIONS WITH ‘ONE’, HIS WORK WITH KEELEY FORSYTH
Louis Carnell today launches 111, an ongoing series of collaborations which sees the musician, artist, and curator present a new work every three weeks, starting with ‘one’, his piece with composer and musician Keeley Forsyth.
Listen to the cycling percussive loops and piano detonations of ‘one’, as Keeley Forsyth’s distinctive vocals work alongside Louis Carnell’s:
111 is curatorial statement from one of the UK’s most elusive artists, drawing on visual, recorded and live performance. The series will see 15 collaborations in total, each unfolding as a cycle of single releases, each created with a diverse selection of artists from across the globe. Louis Carnell conceived of 111 as an endeavour to trace the shape of hope, in an epoch of disintegration.
A new track will emerge on every third Tuesday, with the launch for each creating an environment for the listener to explore the series – without hierarchy – with the aim to question how and with whom we collaborate, and where we can find commonality and community.
Carnell’s work has deep in its heart a concern with both the physical and digital environments where he finds himself. His use of sound to interrogate social structures and hierarchy, saw him at the forefront of tackling themes of anxiety, and the connotations of masculinity and race through the entanglement of introspection.
His meticulous attention to the visual world has resulted in collaborations with Arcin
Sagdic, Daniel Sannwald, Frederik Heyman and Peter De Potter and his recent curated events have included performances at Café OTO, London and the Volksbühne, Berlin – more to be confirmed.
The series continues with releases from Lee Ranaldo and Ben Vince over the coming months, and will continue into 2024 with a further 12 releases.
