inspiration from the anarchic history of Dada and their own
involvement with punk rock, Jutta Koether and Steven Parrino
have come together to create BLACK BONDS, an exhibition which
reinvents anti-art's collaborative spirit. The gallery will
feature Koether and Parrino's "failed paintings": blacked-out
by the artists to cancel, and in turn, reconstruct their works.
The black paintings will serve to define a conceptually destructed
environment in which six noise performances will take place.
Koether and Parrino will perform as Electrophilia at both
the opening and closing events, and have invited Black Dice,
Foot, Christian Marclay and Merzbow to join their collaboration.
Looking to our avant-garde roots in Zurich, the SI will serve
as a new Cabaret Voltaire, hosting a reincarnation of noise,
and anarchic play, in the spirit of both Dada and punk rock.
