Julien Langendorff was born in Paris, France, in 1982. He studied at the École Duperré Paris where he began experimenting in various mediums including metal etchings and film, while writing and playing music. He has exhibited in galleries in Paris, New York, Tokyo and Berlin and first met agnès b. at one of his exhibitions in 2009. He also plays music in Pillars of Fire, a doom-psychedelic band formed with artist Jason Glasser and singer Matteah Balm, and plays and records solo under the name, Skate Witches. Julien Langendorff lives and works in Paris, France.
Black Mirrors is the first monography dedicated to Julien Langendorff’s works. His work combines collage, pen and ink drawings and paper cut-outs of 1970’s erotic imagery and often conjures up dark, dream-like visions influenced by gothic and hippie cultures, Black Sabbath, spiritism and diary-art. Langendorff’s work is both minimal and psychedelic with a free, stream of conscious sensibility. Included in the show are three collaborative pieces with artist and band-mate, Jason Glasser. The title of the series ‘Goddess Fuzz Fantasy’ originated from a line of one of Langendorff’s poems. Published in conjunction with his solo show at Agnès B New York, the book includes texts by Agnes B, Sinziana Ravini, Peter Sutherland.
