Lukas Truniger is a media artist, composer and electronic musician. He is fascinated by the intangible, the invisible, and the complex in nature – such as emergence and biological interactions – and in society in the form of language, (artificial) intelligence, and human infrastructure. To explore their inherent aesthetics, he uses hijacked tools and mass-consumption objects to create singular experiences challenging the modalities of perception, in the form of multimedia installations, sculptural objects, performances and the creation of new musical instruments.
Born in Zürich (CH), he lives and works in Lille in northern France. He obtained a music degree from the Institute for music and media (IMM) in Düsseldorf (D) and a post gradual diploma in fine arts from Le Fresnoy – studio national des arts contemporains in Tourcoing (F).
His installations and performances have been shown internationally in the framework of various exhibitions and festivals: City Sonic in Louvain-la-Neuve (BE), Mapping Festival in Geneva (CH), Mirage Festival in Lyon (F), Pearl Art Museum in Shanghai (CN), Burning Man (US), Safra‘Numériques in Amiens (F), Dark Circuits Festival in New York (US), Seconde Nature in Aix-en-Provence (F), Variation Media Art Fair in Paris (F), Sonica in Glasgow (UK), International Digital Arts Biennal (BIAN) in Montreal (CA), International Symposium for Electronic Arts (ISEA) in Hong Kong, PrixCube in Paris (F), Festival 100% in Paris (F), Marrakech Biennale (MA) and E-Fest in Tunis (TN).
He is represented by Bipolar, a production and distribution agency for digital art located in Montpellier (F).
