0026 Liturgy @ Land and Sea Dept.

Art Direct / Curate / Produce

‘Transcendental Black Metal’ band Liturgy was looking for unique performance opportunities to showcase and support the rerelease of their debut album Renihilation, and it was decided that we’d host a performance with them in our studio space in Chicago.

We collaborated with our shopmates Dictator, with whom we built a sculptural backdrop using their beautiful, handmade amplifiers and heads as an extension and reinterpretation of the ’stage aesthetic’.



We also reached out to artist, collaborator and friend Terence Hannum, who presented some wicked projected visual elements in the space, work that established the evening’s tone from the start.

The event was furthered accentuated by a set from experimental duo White / Light, and then our pals at Solemn Oath Brewery offered up some of their fine, fine beers to all involved.
