This exhibition has been created as a physical itinerary in Bruxelles and its cultural venues. But is it also as a wandering of the mind and eye of the cinema-goer inside Jarmusch’s aesthetics images and mindscapes and constant permeability between music and the visual arts.
LISTENING SESSION / 3:00pm
We’ve invited the record label « I WILL PLAY THIS SONG ONCE AGAIN RECORDS », founded by Sylvain Chauveau and Florent Garnier to play a selection of sounds inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s cinema to wander with us in the Jarmuschian locations of Bruxelles
CONCERT / Jesus is my son (BE) / 5:00pm
Jesus is my son is the solo project of Grégory Duby. The project is a listening of string vibrations, the music is melancholic with space to escape. A pure moment of inner contemplation.
Grégory Duby is a guitarist from Brussels (BE) active in the field of rock and improvised music. Besides his project Jesus is my son, he plays in the loud band Zoho and previously in the trio K-branding. He records albums of improvised and noise music. He created the label FF HHH and is one of the mainstays of Mandaï Distribution.
With Jesus is my son, Grégory wants to approach the idea of immortality, to render each moment eternal. Thanks to this slowness or pattern repetitions, the time stretches itself and eternity may rush into these free spaces. “
FILM / The Limits of Control (2009) / 19:00
A solitary man who does not speak Spanish is an underground courier. Two men who are both thuggish and philosophical send him to Madrid with cryptic instructions. Over the course of a few days, he receives his instructions from a series of distinctive individuals who provide words of philosophy or of warning and also give him a matchbox with a tiny piece of paper, which he reads then eats, accompanied by espresso served in two cups. He is quiet, self-contained, focused on his work. He has rules. He encounters and at times transmits a violin, diamonds, a guitar, and a map. Is he a smuggler? Merely an independent conduit? Or, something else?
