Joel Grip pushes the act of being in between radical and familiar rooms of thought and encounter. In the making of images (let them be musical or drawn) he exerts a continuous flow of letting go allowing for the mysteries of love, swing and being to appear at the foot of the face of the other.
Joel has been drawing/painting his whole life as a way of gesticulating movement and language and to connect and communicate emotion. Many of his images have been used for announcing concerts and recordings (Au Topsi Pohl, Umlaut Records, Hagenfesten, Klub Demboh…). “At the foot of a face” is his first exhibition. You’ll see a selection of recent year’s oil painting and drawings. The section bears in mind and honors the recently passed away musician, artist and writer Tristan Honsinger. As a bassist, Joel Grip is active in groups reimagining and celebrating collective music: [ahmed], Vaka, [ism], Oùat, Klub Demboh, Sapat, and small ensembles with Sven-Åke Johansson.
