Hedi Slimane’s ‘Sun of Sound’ Exhibition in Shanghai

Almine Rech’s Gallery in Shanghai is thrilled to present ‘Sun of Sound’ by acclaimed French multi-disciplinary artist, photographer, and fashion designer Hedi Slimane. This is his fifth solo exhibition at Almine Rech since 2004, and his first exhibition in China.

Sun of Sound is Slimane’s first solo exhibition since his Sonic project in 2014. And although many associate the Paris-born mastermind with high fashion, as they should, his forte has always been photography. This time around he brings back his long-lived love for unretouched black and white snapshots. These shots spread over a wide timeline starting somewhere in 2006, giving them a raw and gritty feeling in today’s hyper-resolution society.

Through this Sun of Sound presentation, his adoration for music shines through. Portraits of legends like Lou Reid, Keith Richards, and Amy Winehouse are hung between an immersive sound installation that symbolizes Slimane’s love of exploring music.

The exhibition will offer the public a view beyond fame, fans, and familiar faces. On the other hand, it will also take you on a journey of ordinary, unknown, and oddly normal people. It will keep you looking for clues, deeper meanings, and hidden stories, even if it’s just trying to figure out what Slimane was feeling and thinking behind his camera.

The exhibition will be on view from Mar 19 to Apr 30, 2021, at Almine Rech Shangai. 27 Huqiu Rd, Huangpu district, 2/F, Shanghai.
