Emi Honda is a Japanese-born artist who has lived in Canada for over a decade. Her delicate and intricate work utilizes materials scavenged from the excesses of daily life. Dusty fake flowers, broken toys, pieces of luxurious fur coats and electrical parts from old VCRs… These once beloved possessions end up in her collection through friend’s hands, thrift shops, or found in the streets and back alleys of Montreal. Carefully chosen materials and calculated compositions bring a gentle order to her work, yet an underlying darkness trickles through even her most whimsical works; a fungus that eats away at its edges. Honda is a member of Montreal-based band Elfin Saddle currently on Constellation Records (they will be touring the northeastern United States this May). Emi has recently expanded her practice to include video/film creation with a new film WURLD, a collaboration with bandmate Jordan McKenzie. For more information, visit elfinsaddle.com

Leyla Majeri is a musician and visual artist, living in Montreal. Under the pseudonym Alphonse Raymond, she has done several small books, zines and newspapers. With silkscreening as her prefered technique, her work explores different methods in order to manipulate colours and geometry inside a world where which games and amusement are used to make imagination triumph. Her drawings, sculptures and performances have been noticed by the experimental art and music scene. Her work has been shown by the galleries Little Cakes and Hanna, as well as by the publishing houses Buenaventura Press and Le Dernier Cri (France). She is currently watching the last episodes of Inuyasha.

Nadia Moss was born in Ontario Canada. She currently lives and works in Montreal.
She has released two artist books with the independent publishing house L’Oie de Cravan (Mr. Non Pigeon 2005, Bébé 2008). She’s participated in numerous zine and small press fairs and has exhibited her work and given talks in commercial galleries and artist run centers across Canada. Her drawings have been featured in Canadian magazines such as The Walrus, Maissonneuve. She has also recently had a drawing accepted for publication in Harpers Magazine. She’s been awarded a grant from BravoFACT, to make a short puppet film which has been shown internationally as well as broadcast in Canada. In October 2009 she did a residency at the Banff Center for the Arts. As well as working in visual art, Nadia is an active member of the music community. She’s played in numerous bands and has collaborated with musicians from all around, notably Carla Bozulich, Vic Chesnutt and Osama Shalabi. She’s also done album artwork and posters for many bands in Montreal.

Silk Flowers / Infinite Body

Silk Flowers / Infinite Body / Earn / Form a Log
March 31st @ Space 1026
$7!

Come on out and get Wierd With PPM recording artists Silk Flowers & Infinite Body and friends. It Will Rule!

Silk Flowers

New epic east coasters now fill the seat of “newcomer” to the PPM rodeo show. SILK FLOWERS is the sound you get when you take two friends from the band SOILED MATTRESS AND THE SPRINGS and another friend from CAR CLUTCH and CORPSE KISSER and mix them all up and give a good shake. Sort of borders the line of KRAFTWERK on a four-track meets cough / cool era MISFITS… i know that sounds insane, and it is! Expect new jams coming in February in the form of a 7″ and also expect a new full length in the spring time. ART ART AWAY.

Infinite Body

Kyle Parker, better known as Infinite Body, is no stranger. He burrows deep inside what a song is, how to strip down something so far to where it just becomes two things, sound and feeling. Infinite Body started in August 2007, after performing and collaborating within the land of LA’s harsh noise world (Haircut Mountain Transit, Gator Surprise, Men Who Can’t Love). After years of making “Harsh” sounds
with the other groups, Kyle started Infinite Body to encompass all things beautiful and began performing and recording this new project. On record, at times it can be hypnotizing and emotionally charging, other times it inspires you to think about life and drift off. Live it takes another form, learning the ropes from the noise world Infinite Body sets out to bliss out your mind, soul and ears by taking over
your senses (he plays LOUD and he has a lot of lights that warp and dance with the music). It becomes an extremely vibrating, beautiful, and rewarding experiment.

After a self released CD titled “White Hymn”, which has won over many listeners, and a few limited 12″s, Infinite Body recorded “Carve Out The Face Of My God” for PPM. It is a step in a new direction with swells, peaks, and valleys of ethereal noise and field recordings arranged for Infinite body’s extreme contextual mind. This vaporous and concise recording effort marks Infinite Body’s transition into deeper waters and opening up to the world around him.

Pitchfork Loves them… see!

SEPARATIONS ANXIETY
Printmaking at Space 1026
March 5th – 27th, 2010
Opening Reception: Friday, March 5th, 7 – 10pm
Space 1026
1026 Arch St. 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA
www.space1026.com

Separations Anxiety, Printmaking At Space 1026 presents the diverse range of prints and printed materials made by the 25+ members of our Philadelphia collective. Fundamental to our creative process, this exhibition exposes our printmaking methods (and madness) presenting finished prints alongside the materials used to make them. Hand cut rubilith, whiteout drawings, photocopies, hand drawn ink positives, and even relief printed acetate; if it is out there, 1026ers have tried it. All this plus test prints, and the of course, the much coveted SUPER RARES. Freaking awesome! Oh and zines, heck yeah. If it’s print related, we’ll be showing it.

As a collective, Space 1026′s installations have ranged from massive multi-story constructions covered in printed works to an elegant geodesic dome. Members have also shown their work individually around the globe. Come see Space 1026′s prints in their natural, free-range habitat. Recently, Space 1026 designed an installation that transformed the gallery spaces of The Print Center into a reading room for Philagrafika 2010, now come see where it all began.
