Incident Report No.31: Julie Lequin


Incident Report is an experimental viewing station for visual projects, located in Hudson, NY. We are a model of portability, non-site, no-budget and low-maintenance. We offer an interface between the many publics of the street, and the concepts and issues generated by artists and social thinkers in a wide yet coherent spectrum.

Installation of Jule Lequin’s “Car Talk“: March 22 – April 19, 2010
Knitting together excerpts from the NPR show of the same name and my own fabricated responses, Car Talk presents a fictional conversation between myself and the two radio icons discussing my linguistic troubles, my Québécoise identity and life as an artist.

One Night Performance of Julie Lequin’s, Top 30
With Special Music/Sound Performances by Jeremy Kelly and Thomas Kiko Morini

Julie Lequin (born in Laval, Quebec in 1979) is a French Canadian artist. She received a BFA from Concordia University (Montreal, PQ) in 2001 and an MFA from Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, CA) in 2005. Julie’s multidisciplinary practice interweaves personal history with fictionalized events and circumstances in a manner that constantly blurs the line between the artist as individual and the artist as self-consciously constructed persona. Julie’s first book and DVD project was published in 2007 by 2nd Cannons Publications. In 2008, Julie was awarded a fellowship from the California Community Foundation and residencies at Yaddo, Art Omi, and Macdowell Colony. In 2009, she exhibited at the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum in California, White Columns and Horton & Liu gallery in New York City. Julie is currently based in Quebec where she is working towards her next solo exhibition at the Darling Foundry in Montreal.

Thomas Kiko Morini is a two year resident musician of Hudson, NY. From Bogota, grown in Carmel, educated in Great Barrington and set out amongst the lively characters of Hudson. His music is inspired by theatrical integration, socialist fundamentals, and the progressive and active expression of love and spirituality. He is a volunteer for WGxC and has recently helped the station to organize the entertainment for the New Years Masquerade. He will be working this summer on a collective musical/theatrica/mixed medium performance art project to be presented over a full weekend at the Basilica Industria in July. This project will be open to community ideas and installations. He encourages all curiosity to be discussed.

Jeremy Kelly (b. 1980) is an electro-acoustic musician and instrument builder. Blending guitar pieces that have been compared to Six Organs of Admittance, Sandy Bull, James Blackshaw and John Fahey with modular synthesizer, found sound, looping and homemade electronics to create deep, immersing soundscapes. Jeremy has several releases available on his own Night Goat imprint, Digitalis Industries, Tape Drift Records and Reverb Worship, with forthcoming albums on House of Alchemy, Stunned Records And Digitalis. He will be joined by long time collaborator Geoff Maciolek (modular synthesizer, theremin and electronics), and a few special guest performers.
