s Xavier Veilhan was preparing for his
seventh solo show at Galerie Perrotin,
his longtime dealer Emmanuel
Perrotin suggested he make it a double.
"It was definitely his idea," says Veilhan
of his new two-venue show, "Music," on view
at the gallery's Paris and New York locations.
"I wanted to draw attention to the producers,
the people who give shape to sound. I
discovered that what they're doing is
symmetrical to what I'm doing as a
visual artist. We're all giving form to our
imagination and desires." Among the subjects
he's rendered in wood and metal are Giorgio
Moroder, Quincy Jones, Lee "Scratch" Perry
and Rick Rubin. "I find it amazing that there
are producers who have had such an impact
on the sounds we know, but remain relatively
unknown." That may
not be true for much
longer—at least not in New
York or Paris.
