Moses Boyd 'Allez La France! X Moses Boyd Performance' by Francois Larpin
In celebration of the exhibition Allez La France! at Saatchi Yates, the London gallery and exhibiting artists collaborated with British jazz drummer and 2020 Mercury Prize nominee Moses Boyd on a unique composition made in response to the works in the exhibition - performed by Boyd, and captured by French filmmaker François Larpin.
Boyd's piece was inspired by the work of Hams Klemens, Jin Angdoo, Kevin Pinsembert and Mathieu Julien - who make up the French collective also known by their contemporaries as “Moderne Jazz”. They began their work between Marseille and Paris, painting on walls and under tunnels, creating large abstract works that existed exclusively within public spaces. This is the first time that the French collective have been shown together, within a gallery space.
Moses Boyd is popularly known for blending multiple genres into jazz to create various new sub-genres, and has described his own music as "an extension of black music, the diaspora" which draws influence from afrobeats, soca, reggae, drum and bass and jungle music. This performance acts as an introduction to a forthcoming film about the intersection between art and jazz, centered around the four artists showing at the Allez La France exhibition - also directed by François Larpin.
