A French pop singer, Yelle released her first album, Pop-Up, in 2007. A bright, colorful, and sassy artist, Yelle (and producer GrandMarnier) first came to prominence after a song entitled "Short Dick Cuizi" was posted on her /MySpace page. The track, a jab at TTC hip-hop crew member Cuizinier, was later altered (lyrically at least) and became Yelle’s first official single in 2006, "Je Veux Te Voir."

HiE Gallery Presents




New Group Show: From Elsewhere to Here /
William Lemon III Forces

Opening: May 26th 2011, 5:30-8:30pm


Here is Elsewhere is returning to its original space, B 231, on the 26th of May with a new group show, From Elsewhere to Here.




From Elsewhere to Here features a range of artists, from world‐renowned assemblage artist John Outterbridge and
iconic American photographer Mark Laita to emerging artists including William Lemon III and Joshua Von
Nonn. Passages, layouts and cross‐disciplinary practices are at the center of this exhibition, which will mix sculpture,
drawing, painting, tapestry, installation, video art and photography.


American artist William Lemon III presents Forces, an "exhibition within the exhibition" in the central gallery space,
where he will perform a special musical piece on opening night. During his stint as an art handler, Lemon III (shown in
our previous exhibition, Absurdism) searches for the proper artistic alchemic ingredients in order to create what he calls
American artist William Lemon III presents Forces, an "exhibition within the exhibition" in the central gallery space,
where he will perform a special musical piece on opening night. During his stint as an art handler, Lemon III (shown in
our previous exhibition, Absurdism) searches for the proper artistic alchemic ingredients in order to create what he calls
his "voodoo collages." Exposed to famous works of art that were left to sit in warehouses, he secretly cut slivers off the
back edge of some canvases and integrated these fragments into his multimedia collages, which gave the entombed art
life again and hence proffered a metaphor of the commercialization and coveting of art and objects. The results are
stunning pieces, which combine their sacred dimension with Lemon’s own visual symbolism. Lemon’s Forces show at
HiE features other works from the past and present, creating fluid sentences of block prints, drawings and tapestries.


We also have the honor of presenting three new works by esteemed Los Angeles‐based artist John Outterbridge, as
well as two masterpieces only shown in Europe until now. Outterbridge’s works are in the collections of major museums
such as MOCA and LACMA, and will be a major part of next year’s Pacific Standard Time project of the Getty Research
Institute.


Massachusetts native Joshua von Nonn began drawing and painting in 2007, with the motivational support of his
friend, James McLeod. "I attempt a spontaneous connection to the canvas to try and capture the internal thought. A word
that arbitrarily pops in my head, from a book, song, newspaper article or conversation will influence the direction I take. A
color scheme which I find fitting may then develop. When form appears early on it tends to disrupt the stream of
consciousness. In turn I paint over the form wholly or partially, reasserting the nonlinear
movement of thought."


The conflict between nature and artifice is at the core of Emily Smith, a recent MFA graduate, whose works were
exhibited at HiE’s Venice from Then to Now show. Exhibiting for the first time in the United States, French artist Année
AngevinDjian

presents "Papillon Blanc," a dreamy video in which oranges bring dead bodies back to life. N. Agyapong
presents her mask/written portrait and David Quadrini presents a new painting that was created specifically for this
exhibition.


In addition, four contemporary photographers constitute yet another segment of From Elsewhere to Here in the nine
glass "vitrines" and on the mirroring parallel wall. In association with Fahey/Klein Gallery, we are pleased to exhibit
photographic works by Mark Laita. Laita travelled across the lower 48 states of the USA over a seven‐year period to
create his initial body of work. Using an 8x10 camera, he created memorable portraits of people who are each uniquely
representative of their characters. These works are cumulated in a fascinating body of photos and resulting book,
entitled Created Equal from which a selection of ten pieces is presented at HiE. Laita continually adds onto this body of
work to this very day. Vanessa Atlan, whose works were previously shown at HiE, returns to the gallery with her
"Homage to Miralda." The photographic abstractions of director Pen Densham reveal their subtle poetry with
underlying natural patterns. Finally, to cap off the show, the cult British music photographer Lawrence Watson
presents a selection of his astonishing portraits of the singer Grace Jones.


Here is Elsewhere is a project space dedicated to exploring the hidden history that links artists from "Here" (Southern
California) with artists from "Elsewhere" (the rest of the world).

Los Angeles has become in the last decades one of the world capitals of the arts. If Angeleno artists are now at the top of
the art scene, their perception and influence abroad is still to be researched, understood and exhibited in its full length.
Hence the idea of Here is Elsewhere: to (re)create, stimulate and increase the dialogue between artists from here and
from elsewhere and from different fields and from different generations. Exhibitions, presentations, talks and
performances will be organized at the end of each project as a result of these original collaborations, and in
collaboration with cultural institutions, museums and galleries.
