Dogs Responding To The Huge Tunes
Inspired by rave culture and a 1977 Free Jazz album ‘Drums, Voices, Knispel Nie’ by German Jazz percussionist Frank Köllges. Knispel Nie is a dog that can be heard reacting to Köllges’ performance. The work explores the idea of ‘now’ - the euphoric feeling one can experience at a rave, in a club, at a gig or just listening to music. Placing a dog (who lacks the negative programming and the self-conscious inhibitions of humans) in an environment like this encapsulates the joyous feeling of being free and present in the moment – not a care in the world.
Printed on 308gms Hahnemühle Photorag with a super matt finish and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth gradients.
