Lek & Sowat will be premiering a new insitu installation in Marseille France in association with Agnès B for the “This is not Music” Festival. The month long festival features concerts an art opening and so much more. Agnès B a supporter of the artists brought them to Marseille to allow them to create a site specific installation. Lek and Sowat who prefer to work in environments versus strictly on a canvas or traditional medium were allowed to occupy their own space to create this installation. The artists choose to work in abandoned areas, or the lost and forgotten areas. Agnès B was able to secure them a space that they could feel at home in. Here are some preview images and progress pictures of the installation. The installation will open tomorrow the 10th of May. See information below.
