Serpentine Galleries in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, the Hayward and Corvi-Mora galleries present a live concert and release party for the debut EP from Exotourisme, a.k.a Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Julian Perez.

Citing Ridley Scott’s timeless Blade Runner film as an inspiration, Gonzalez-Foerster draws on the synthetic French new wave of Lizzy Mercier Descloux and Serge Gainsbourg to weave a seductive, neon-soaked sound evocative of Paris’ nefarious ’80s underground.

Exotourism’s new two-track EP is a retro/futuristic soundtrack for transient replicants and nocturnal renegades everywhere.

Both songs written and interpreted by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s artistic practice is restlessly cross-disciplinary, taking cues from film, literature, architecture, philosophy and critical theory. Gonzalez-Foerster uses live performance and holographic projections that conflate characters from history, literature and film with their sociological sources and ramifications. González-Foerster has had solo exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou (2002 and 2015); Kunsthalle Zürich (2004); Musée d’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2007); Tate Modern (2008); Dia Art Foundation (2009); Guggenheim Museum (2011) and Palacio de Cristal, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (2014). Select group exhibitions include: Documenta (2002); São Paulo Biennial (2006); Skulptur Projekte Münster (2007) and Venice Biennale (2009). Gonzalez-Foerster is the recipient of the Mies van der Rohe Award (1996–97) and the Marcel Duchamp Award (2002).
