Saint Laurent: Sonic

An exhibition of photographs by Hedi Slimane, titled Sonic, explores 15 years of Hedi Slimane’s musical archives.

Among the Creative Director of Saint Laurent’s studio portraits are black and white images that will be exhibited for the first time. The photographs include portrayals of heroic rock figures, which include Lou Reed. Brian Wilson, Amy Winehouse and Keith Richards.

The project will be completed with a video installation, juxtaposing the musical cycles of London (2003-2007) and California (2007-2014) in a documentary style. The result will paint an alternative portrait of two generations of performers and their fans.

Sonic will open in September 2014 at Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent. The collection will also be available in a book published by Xavier Barral Publications.
