Evian Christ Joins Warp, Preps Installation
The UK producer will mount an installation at London's ICA for his first label-related project.
Evian Christ is the latest artist to be added to pioneering UK label Warp‘s roster. Christ first made a name for himself with an outing on Tri Angle, scoring production credits on Kanye West’s Yeezus album not long after. Instead of a record, his first project for Warp will take the form of a collaborative installation at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. Working with Warp’s David Rudnick, Christ will reportedly assemble and present archival materials related to the so-called Trance War, said to have begun in Europe in 1998 and continuing through today. The installation (image below) is described as a memorial to the 30,000 dogs that died in the war, and runs from July 23 for three days; more complete information can be found here. (via FACT)
