NOME launches its series of concert and exhibition with the exhibition Vinyl Record Drypoint Prints by the American musician and visual artist Lee Ranaldo from August 27th until September 10th. Ranaldo will perform his composition In Virus Times, an instrumental acoustic piece in four parts that explores the sense of motionless time through sparse, meandering melodies and spacious chordal drones.
In his artwork, Ranaldo uses old vinyl records as plates for drypoint engraving – scratching directly on the vinyl surface and then printing the results. His exhibition Vinyl Record Drypoint Prints will present a series of prints related to In Virus Times that includes, among other images, a work based on an electron microscope shot of the Covid-19 virus.
Lee Ranaldo is a musician, composer, visual artist, writer, producer. Ranaldo was a founding member of Sonic Youth, from their debut in 1981 until they disbanded in 2011. His artworks and videos have recently been exhibited in gallery and museum shows in Porto, Halifax, Miami, Tampa, Vienna, Prague, Gent, Bratislava, Auckland, Salt Lake City, Austin, Brooklyn, at the VOLTA fair in Manhattan and in Menen, Belgium. He has been an artist-in-Residence: at CNEAI, Paris (2007, 2008); NSCAD, Halifax, Nova Scotia (2013); Villa Arson, Nice, France (2014).
