Published Sep 05, 2014King Krule (a.k.a. Archy Marshall) has unveiled plans for an art, music and performance exhibition called Inner City Ooz that will be showing at Display Gallery in London starting today (September 5).
The interactive art project is a collaborative effort between King Krule and his brother Jack (a.k.a. Mistr Gone). The gallery released a statement about the new exhibition, which reads:
Intersecting memories and moments of lived experience are brought together in an impressively diverse body of work incorporating poetry, music, painting, illustration, silk-screen and linocut — all acts of artistic liberation that address universal themes of the memory, time, and role of the artist in an evolving cityscape. Through an immersive installation of soundscapes and live-performances the show aims to create a secluded, fictional environment where the viewer can find refuge from the outside world and reflect on the endless possibilities that one can discover within oneself.
To mark the opening of the exhibition, Jack and Archy will create an immersive, sound-based piece that maps out a subconscious world where memories have been recorded and sampled, consisting of three entwined elements: an ambient composition which runs on a loop throughout the night, a variety of sound installations with an interactive element in each, and a percussionist improvising and interpreting rhythms to accompany the ambient composition. These installations carry buttons and triggers that the public are invited to tamper with in order to alter and distort what the two have imagined.
Before his foray into modern art, Archy impressed everyone with his King Krule debut 6 Feet Beneath the Moon last year. When the album dropped last summer, there was a lot of fawning over how talented the guy was for a 19-year-old.
Now "Easy, Easy" from that album has been given a makeover by none other than Will Smith's 13-year-old daughter Willow. Despite being responsible for "Whip My Hair" back in 2010, the young singer actually delivers a solid, sophisticated rendition of "Easy, Easy."
