This summer, Guy Gerber will be the first resident DJ at Ibiza’s brand-new Club Chinois every Sunday for his weekly residency titled Mirror Game. This weekly party series, taking place from June 19 through October 9, is themed on the transformative potential of a reflective surface, and invites partygoers to inhabit the fantastical world of Guy Gerber.
The globally renowned DJ’s career has been built on contradiction and dualism from the start, and like many creative types, he has grappled with the gap between ideals and the realities of life. Gerber’s latest Ibiza residency, Mirror Game, is the latest example of his refusal to take the safe route; previous chapters include the controversial Wisdom of the Glove residency, which was featured in the New York Times and included a $150,000 glove, and Rumors, a free, feet-in-the-sand party with only unannounced sets.
Gerber’s goal on each visit was to add something new to the White Island, to honor its unconventional history while also evoking the sense of mystery and independence that initially drew him there.
Gerber devised the artistic direction and artwork for Mirror Game, which was inspired by Anish Kupor and James Turrell, and also booked all the shows. It’s an artistic endeavor, not merely a mechanical one, because its creation requires human hands.
Even though they are made of earthly materials, mirrors have the capacity to transport us to other worlds, making them not only one of the most powerful but also one of the oldest visual tools we have. Participants will enter a room full of mirrors each week; these mirrors will reflect our suffering, joy, beauty, and defects, providing a rogue’s gallery of reflections in which to discover or lose themselves.
There is a particularly unusual area within this hall of mirrors that will allow you to walk right through your own image. Mirror Token holders or game members may go above and beyond the typical party experience by gaining access to exclusive digital art collections, partial ownership of a Gerber track, and even partial ownership of the game itself. Please, come in.
“Look into the mirror, and tell me what you see.
Do you see yourself… or what you’d wish to be?
Look into the mirror, and tell me what you see.
A room full of demons as happy as can be.
Because the reflection has told me, you came with the dawn.
A soul with no footprint, a rose with no thorn.
Your reflection has told me, You’re a rare, rare find.
A troubled cure, for a troubled mind.”
