Los Angeles, CA (May 4, 2009)–Iconoclastic filmmaker David Lynch and music visionary Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) are collaborating on their first ever project and installation, Dark Night of the Soul, on view at the Michael Kohn Gallery (http://www.kohngallery.com) from May 30 through July 11, 2009.

For their premiere collaboration, David Lynch and Danger Mouse have designed a two-room installation at Michael Kohn Gallery capitalizing on the interplay between the music from Danger Mouse’s and Sparklehorse’s album Dark Night of the Soul and the artwork David Lynch created for the album, allowing the mediums of art and music to complement one another. Fifty of Lynch’s photographs are mounted on aluminum panels that seem to float on the gallery walls, reinforcing the moody rhythms of the music from Dark Night of the Soul that will play throughout the gallery. The installation encourages a fully enveloping experience that surpasses the individual visual or auditory elements.Dark Night of the Soul began when Danger Mouse, who has been a fan of Lynch’s for many years, approached the filmmaker about a possible project. The artists worked together and were inspired by each other—Lynch making photographs influenced by the original songs that Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse were creating. The result is Dark Night of the Soul, Danger Mouse’s first-ever gallery installation, and David Lynch’s first exhibition at Michael Kohn Gallery in nearly 15 years. (The first was in 1995, titled One through Ten, and featured photographs and drawings by the artist.) Lynch’s most recent installation, Diamonds, Gold and Dreams, was on view in the Cartier Dome at Art Basel Miami Beach in December 2008.Dark Night of the Soul is also the title of a full-length album and illustrated book ($50, published by powerHouse) combining the talents of Danger Mouse, David Lynch and celebrated rock recluse Sparklehorse. In addition to the 100+ page book of David Lynch’s original photographs, the album features artists such artists as the Flaming Lips, Iggy Pop, Frank Black, James Mercer (The Shins), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes) and Suzanne Vega, among many others.

About Me

Name: Monchie Horror
Home: Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico
About Me: en mi otra vida fui pianista. cuando era niño queria ser: mimo, mago y comediante, tambien balarin de tap y titiritero, nada de esto funciono. despues empece a hacer mis propios comics: el camello galactico y godzilla vs. mario bros. todos fueron repudiados por la critica, con desesperanza me refugie en las peliculas y caricaturas de los 80*s. despues la musica y los libros me hicieron ver que la vida es como tiritas acidas de colores nucleicos. siempre he sido triste, y conforme pasan los anos nada me aleja de pensar que la tristeza no cesara. me gusta mucho escribir, pero mi sueño es llegar a ser director de cine, sino me muero muy joven creo que lograre serlo. a veces soy un panda otras tantas me vomito, pero siempre puedo contar con que las cosas estaran cada vez peor. odio los gritos. odio a las personas escandalosas. amo la nieve. amo el chocolate.
