Feist - DHC/ART Gallery - July 3

Feist offered a "secret" performance at an art gallery in the Old Port to inaugurate an exhibition by Sophie Calle called Take Care Of Yourself. The purpose of this exhibition is to present 107 different female interpretations of a break-up letter the artist received by email from her ex. Feist therefore decided to offer the audience a few of her best break-up songs from her albums Let It Die and The Reminder.

The show was supposed to be private, but became public at the very last minute. Surprisingly, the artsy-vernissage crowd was very attentive and seemed to enjoy Feist’s solo appearance. The Juno Award winner played a short set of only five songs ("Honey Honey", "Now At Last", "Let It Die" and two covers) in a room filled with photographs of some of the 107 females reading the said letter.

With such a set-up, Feist’s performance was quite moving and beautiful. Her voice is what really struck me the most – it’s always without the help of top-of-the-line sound equipment you can really tell how talented a signer is. Also, not many musicians can pull this off in general, but it kind of made sense to see Feist, alone in her summer dress and with her electric guitar, signing about heartbreaks in an art gallery.

Sophie Calle’s exhibition was first presented last year for the Biennale in Italy and created quite a buzz : the 107 contributors are various females from all over the world, such as doctors, lawyers, psychologists and many performers (like Peaches and Carla Bruni just to name a few). A book was then released, and many videos show a good preview of the exhibition.

Take Care Of Yourself is on until October 19 at the DHC/ART Gallery (451 St-Jean Street)
