" Screen-printing design duo Seripop (Montreal), makes show posters that abuse colour, disembowel type, and contort the mind. This exhibition features some of their many hand-printed posters and exclusive art prints that are representative of a technique and style unique the noise rock movement that emerged across North America.
Seripop's visual aesthetic has become an expression of a music culture and attitude that is not so prominent in Hong Kong. DIY ethics, independent culture, and punk lie at the crux of their work. Fittingly, the two are also a part of noise rock band Aids Wolf, and have toured their music and art extensively across US and Europe.
In June 2006, Seripop was invited to do the poster new experimental music festival in Hong Kong: Sand Fest that took place at Para/site Art Space in co-production with White Noise Records.
Continuing the link between art and music, White Noise Records will be inviting Runar Magnusson (Iceland) to perform. His experimental sounds share an attitude towards music that compliments the aesthetic and drive of Seripop.
A raucous DJ set by elle est chiNOISE who will be spinning anything from feedback to gangsta rap, will follow. "
