MARYJANE THOMSON

STREET-ish

 Exhibiting 6th to 21st September

OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION: Friday 6th September from 5.30pm

In her latest solo exhibition, Author and Photographer MaryJane Thomson’s arresting and large-scale street scenes capture the wild, the sacred and profane from one of the world’s most eccentric capitals, London, England.

Amidst the backdrop of architectural elegance from a bygone era, Thomson’s fly on the wall documentary style embraces the very essence of this city; from Street Art to London’s Pride Festival, from socio-economic squalor to the bustling theatrical nightlife, MaryJane’s encapsulating colourful works lead you through the ironies of such a big city.

Accompanying the photography exhibition are an Art Book (titled the same as the exhibition) and an instrumental composition conceived as a silent protest to all the outrage, opinions and ideas expressed in today’s world entitled ‘This is How the Deaf Sing’.

Street-ish expresses the power of the 21st Century. It is an aesthetic voice mixed with social and political certainty/uncertainty, both impressionistic and scientific in an astounding documentation of the times we live in.

MaryJane has put her view of the world coming from a perspective of deafness; when MaryJane photographs, it is often muted, a silent world seen for what it is; open, honest and without judgement – for there is always more to know and understand.

______________________________________________________________________________

Musician MaryJane Thomson has self-released her first release an EP on her label, Just Another MJT Production. The EP, This Is How the Deaf Sing, was recorded in a Wellington studio The Armoury. 

The music can be heard on its own, as a continuous piano instrumental piece which goes through different tempos and moods, following her path of unique soundscapes, like many innovators before her, Satie, Bartok and Stockhausen who have opened up music trails for those who come after. This is a soundtrack to her exhibition but also a soundtrack to accompany a listener on their everyday journeys in life.

This Is How the Deaf Sing will be played as part of MaryJane’s exhibition on September 6 at Potocki Paterson in Wellington, New Zealand. MaryJane will eventually perform in Wellington and around New Zealand. The music was conceived as a continuous piece, an antidote to a loud world spinning in outrage. It is a long song, 25 minutes, but it can be broken down into 5 tracks. It is a music searching frequencies to create a peaceful space on The Earth. A music that is found in the air. MaryJane is searching for the notes to articulate a song from a muted world that conveys the depth of feeling from silence.
