yesterday, today, tomorrow, forever
London-based artist, musician, designer, producer and DJ Trevor Jackson has been making visual work since he founded his first design company “Bite It!“ in 1987. He has exhibited and created projects for art institutions including London’s ICA and Barbican, Gateshead's Baltic, and the Onedotzero festival, won various international design awards for his work with the band Soulwax and collaborated with clients such as Nike, BMW, Lexus, Coca Cola, & Uniqlo. Alongside his visual work he is best known for his music project 'Playgroup' and the seminal record label Output Recordings (original home to Four Tet & LCD Soundsystem).
His latest solo-show by the name of “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, Forever“ will be on display between March 21st and May 16th at 12 Mail/Red Bull Space in Paris. "This is an exhibition about imperfections. A show about how experience changes us and the objects and environment around us. Over the past four years Trevor Jackson has created a series of microscopic images taken of records from his extensive personal collection. The aim - to capture detailed images of vinyl surfaces, highlighting the individuality of physical sound waves visually distorted by scratches, stains and smears - wear and tear the artist unintentionally inflicted upon them during decades of use. These large scale graphic prints are being shown together publicly for the first time at the 12Mail / Red Bull Space Gallery.“
