GOOD GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN, BAD GIRLS GO EVERYWHERE
FRÉDÉRIC GIES with FIEDEL and ANTON STOIANOV
Frédéric Gies invites you to a 3 hours and 38 minutes experiment, for which he collaborates with the dj Fiedel and the visual artist Anton Stoianov.
Frédéric Gies fell in love with Fiedel’s work, dancing many times on his sets in Berlin at Berghain, where Fiedel is resident. Fiedel started to dj publicly in the mid 90’s on Mondays at a club called Subversiv, which then has been a constant in Berlin’s underground techno scene. He is also part of MMM, a collaboration between him and Errorsmith. Their track “Donna” is considered a much played techno classic. In fall 2012 Fiedel started his own label called 'Fiedelone' to release his solo productions.
Berlin was also the meeting point for Frédéric and Anton Stoianov, when the two of them were regulars at the mythical Basso, a place where many artists were mingling, working and partying together. They also shared many nights and days on Berghain’s dance floor. Frédéric proposed Anton to collaborate on this project after seeing his large-scale abstract paintings, made without paint or pigment, but of worn cotton socks. His new body of work is currently presented at xavierlaboulbenne, Berlin.
