Sean Yseult To Curate Photography Show Of Other Musicians Next Month In San Francisco


B-Sides Heron Arts Sean Yseault ghostcultmag

Former White Zombie co-founder Sean Yseault is curating a photography exhibit featuring other prominent musicians as well as her own work. Presented by Heron Arts, B-­Sides: Nine Crossover Hits is a group show exhibiting artists including Moby, Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal), Mike Watt (Minutemen & The Stooges), Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs), Pat Sansone (Wilco), Henry Butler, and Louviere+Vanessa (The Quaalords) and Yseult herself. B-­Sides opens on September 10, 2016 with a reception from 6:30-9:30 PM and runs through October 1, 2016.

Each musician tells a story through their work. Sean Yseult depicts a secret society party in 1870s New Orleans that turns from decadent to deadly – based partly on research and fact coupled with a dash of fiction. Dave Catching depicts haunting beauty in his black and white photos, capturing images lost in time, from Jerusalem to Joshua Tree. Chris Coleman uses texture and nature to play tricks on the eye, glittering pavement turning into a starry night. Punk legend Mike Watt captures the surreal in photographing his hometown of San Pedro, somehow making a beautiful day on the water look like a post­-apocalyptic meltdown. Greg Dulli similarly makes the everyday appear surreal in every shot, capturing some very unexpected moments. Pat Sansone exposes the sleepy south beautifully with his Polaroid, like a Wilco soundtrack. Moby’s work depicts the isolation and alienation that arise from spending years in lifeless and anonymous spaces. Legendary blues pianist Henry Butler captures typical Louisiana subjects – Mardi Gras and the swamps – in the most atypical way, where he has turned being a blind photographer into a plus. Also from New Orleans, photo duo Louviere+Vanessa not only play in bands, but have created an entire show based on photographing music.

Yseult, who has had several new exhibitions and gallery shows in the last few years is best known as the bass player from the multi­-platinum band White Zombie. Sean spent her formative years studying music and attending the North Carolina School of the Arts for ballet. She changed majors to visual arts in her senior year of high school due to injury. Her photographic work lead to a scholarship at Parsons School of Design in New York City, where she earned a BFA in photography and graphic design. Following White Zombie’s breakup, she moved to New Orleans in 1996 and returned to her original love of photography and design.
