Igni Natura Renovatur Integra
The Artistic Legacy of Jennifer Bates
On Saturday, December 1, 2007, six esteemed Philadelphia musicians will gather at Germ Books and Gallery to ritually close the current art show of our founder, the late Jennifer Bates. At approximately 3PM, David E. Williams– Germ’s owner and Bates’ widower– will open the performance on synthesizer with a plaintive melody from one of Jennifer’s own compositions. From there, the other musicians will join in an improvised performance of electronic drones, noises and other psychonautic sounds that evoke Jennifer’s spirit on the day before many of her paintings leave Germ’s immediate family forever to find homes among Germ’s extended family. The overwhelming mood is intended to be elegiac, but with the personnel involved, one cannot predict the performance’s ultimate direction, length or conclusion. The collaboration will be unrehearsed, with the intent that inspiration be drawn from Jennifer’s memory, legacy and irrefutable presence. [Photo by MICHAEL BRYANT / Inquirer]
