About

Take Courage Gallery at 192 Southgate Road, London N1 3HU Mordant Music Stanley Schtinter Vindicatrix 17.06.11 - 25.6.11 Preview 16.06.11 6pm Take Courage presents three sound, music and film installations taking place across three floors of the gallery's new temporary space in Dalston. Mordant Music present 'Nesst 3', a pillbox bunker structure that projects Buà ±uel and Dali's 'Un chien Andalou' from one of the gun emplacement slits. The soundtrack to the film has been reinterpreted by the label's founder, Baron Mordant, and the bunker is constructed by the artist Jaye Ho. This is the first London showing of the Nesst project, having been previously installed at Unsound festival in Krakow and at the Flatpack Film Festival in Birmingham. Cult record label Mordant Music have been releasing experimental electronic music since 2001. Musician Vindicatrix draws on a diverse sonic palette, described by Alex Williams as a series of bizarrely broken assemblages, a parade of semi-functioning aesthetic machines: neurotoxic Weimar Republic house, serialist ethno-dubstep, dada-nightmare isolationist ambient, and ... unearthly liminal ballads." Taking cues from an encounter with Congolese power objects (nkisi) in the Musée d'Ethnographie de Genève, Vindicatrix constructs a mechanised avatar to take his place in an automated musical performance.
