About


Lukas Truniger is a new media and sound artist. His work is driven by the intangible, the invisible, the inaudible and the complex in nature as well as in society. He creates singular experiences challenging the modalities of perception, pinpointing unseen connections of artificial, natural and social systems to further blur their supposed division. He takes advantage of the mimetic nature of technology to create speculative representations of transient aspects of reality. These explorations can take the form of multimedia installations, artistic infrastructures, 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 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 in institutions such as the Ludwig Museum in Budapest, Pearl Art Museum in Shanghai, Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence, Harvestworks in New York City, Arsenal in Montreal and La Villette in Paris as well as at various festivals: Ars Electronica in Linz, City Sonic in Louvain-la-Neuve (BE), Mapping Festival in Geneva, Mirage Festival in Lyon, Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, Retune Festival in Berlin, Lethargy Festival in Zürich, Dark Circuits Festival in New York, Variation Media Art Fair in Paris, Sonica in Glasgow, International Digital Arts Biennial (BIAN) in Montreal, International Symposium for Electronic Arts (ISEA) in Hong Kong, PrixCube in Paris, Festival 100% in Paris, Marrakech Biennale and E-Fest in Tunis.

He is represented by Bipolar, a production and distribution agency for digital art located in Montpellier (F).
