7 February - 24 May 2009
Curator: Richard Julin

For more than a decade, the poet and musician Lee Ranaldo and the artist Leah Singer have been collaborating in multimedia performances. Lee Ranaldo is a founding member of Sonic Youth, Leah Singer is an artist, with film as her primary medium. The exhibition iloveyouihateyou at Magasin 3 is based on an audiovisual work by Leah Singer and Lee Ranaldo. This work is an exploration of how image and sound interact, and will be staged both as a live performance and as an installation. Their performance work and installations combine a flow of images and sounds taken from everyday situations, moments that reveal the beauty of the ordinary and turn the commonplace into something extraordinary.

The exhibition also features three historic experimental films on the theme of “everyday existence” and the capacity to see the greatness in small things. The films are by Gordon Matta-Clark, Terry Fox, Nancy Holt & Robert Smithson.
