About



Lukas Truniger is a visual artist, electronic musician and creative technologist, working with generative media in the broadest sense. He creates singular experiences challenging the modalities of perception, taking advantage of the mimetic nature of technology to reflect the human condition and hinting at the materiality of our digital societies. His work pinpoints at unseen connections of artificial, natural and cultural systems, further blurring their supposed division. He explores latent realities through emergent choreographies and systemic narratives, which can take the form of multimedia installations, speculative infrastructures, and audiovisual performances.

Born in Zürich (CH), he lives and works in Paris. He obtained a music degree from the Robert Schumann conservatory, Institute of 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 work has been shown internationally since 2016 in institutions such as the HeK – House of electronic Arts (Basel), West Kowloon Cultural District (Hong Kong), V2_ (Rotterdam), Ludwig Museum (Budapest), Pearl Art Museum (Shanghai), Fondation Vasarely (Aix-en-Provence), Harvestworks (New York City), Arsenal (Montreal) and La Villette (Paris) as well as at various festivals:
