The culmination of an incredible two-year photographic project, Jessica van der Weert presents Flipside showcasing some of the world’s biggest DJs and producers out from behind the decks and reveals them as you’ve never seen them before. Featuring subjects including Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Goldie, Paul Oakenfold, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Judge Jules, Example, Orbital, Shy FX, Jaguar Skills, Boy George, DJ Fresh and many more, this unique body of work is the vision of renowned photographer Jessica van der Weert.
In conjunction with art agents Beautiful Crime and Eddie Lock, Jessica van der Weert unveils this celebration of the world of dance music at London’s Hoxton Gallery. While some works feature global music heavies in their other favourite places – Carl Cox doing burnouts in his Lotus, artist Goldie covered in paint in his studio – others feature superstar DJs re-enacting their fantasies, aided by Jess’s imagination and creative eye, such as Boy George dressed in full combat gear amidst clouds of purple smoke, re-enacting a scene from Platoon.
Flipside aims to raise awareness (and funds) for the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) – an organisation that supports people with this debilitating hearing condition that affects almost 10% of UK adults and which affects many DJs.
Public Opening 27th February – 4th March 2015 – 4 March at Hoxton Gallery, 9 Kingsland Road, London E2 6AA.
