As part of Festival 2018 and Glasgow’s linking to Berlin for the European Championships, we invited Berlin-based audio/visual artist Tom Scholefield (aka Konx-on-Pax) to host a retrospective exhibition. The show featured record sleeve designs, graphic prints, posters, 3D visuals and video work from 2005 – 2018, showcasing Tom’s unique and immediately identifiable vibrant aesthetic. For the Preview weekend, Tom was also joined by Glasgow DJs Sofay and Ribeka for an exclusive live set in the ISO screening room before playing an exclusive live AV set in George Square with Mogwai’s Barry Burns and his band SUMS.
Tom has had his directorial work shown in different publications and festivals all over the world and is known for his psychedelic 3D live visuals for artists such as Lone and his own performances. In more recent years, he has worked with labels such as Warp Records, Brainfeeder, Hyperdub and LuckyMe and he continues to release his own electronic music on Planet Mu.
