About

QVORG (Edward Quist, Derek Gruen) . Enter the Whore (in collaboration with Paul Stein)

Enter the Whore is a genre warping film and soundscape, following the descent of a man into the underbelly of early 80s New York City, as his memory is extracted from far in the future. The exhibition consists of sound, 3-D printed sculptures and a painting titled The Simian Ziggurat.

Edward Quist . Mika Vainio / Triode Kuvaputki

53 min (one minute for each year of Mika's life).

In 1999, Finnish electronic arch experimentalists Mika Vainio and IIpo Vaisanen, embarked on their legendary Around the World Tour as Pan Sonic, along with artist Edward Quist as visualizer and documentarian. The collaboration culminated in the seminal film Kuvaputki (Cathode Ray Tube). In 2017, a tragic accident in Normandy, France took Mika Vainio's life, leaving behind a monumental body of work. His work with Ilpo Vaisanen as Pan Sonic, and numerous solo works and collaborations across the art world, illustrate his influence over a generation. After asking some of Vainio's sound art contemporaries, and the emergent drivers of the new generation, to contribute a soundscape in Mika's memory, Quist reinterpreted some of the film 's methods as a kind of spiritual sequel for a post Vainio landscape. Twenty years after Kuvaputki, with a poignant capstone composition by Ilpo Vaisanen, and Dirk Dresselhaus as die Angel, Triode Kuvaputki is intended to be as ever evolving a work as its progenitor.

KUVAPUTKI (38 min)
Directed by Edward Quist
Produced by Derek Gruen
Music by Pan Sonic
Digital artist Edward Quist developed imagery to Pan Sonic's experiments in synthesis. He combined cathode ray visions with Mika Vainio's and Ilpo Väisänen's uncompromising electronic sound, with the black and white abstraction of the film tying into the extremes of the music. Grounded in principals of self-restriction and minimalism, Vainio and Välsänen, are immersed in the imagery of the cathode which seems to live and infect their physicality over the course of three parallel films as they merge with their own extreme sound and into Quist's sinister vision.
