New York based Kim Gordon and Jutta Koether regularly collaborate on installations and performance projects. Apart from being a founding member, bass player, vocalist and guitarist in the alternative rock group Sonic Youth, Gordon has worked on numerous creative projects across many genres. Koether is a noted painter, writer, rock and art critic, musician and performance artist, and her projects often interlace all of these roles.
This screening, performance and discussion formed part of the ongoing project, Her Noise, for which Gordon was
commissioned to create a large-scale installation and performance programme, which opened at South London Gallery
on 10 November 2005.
