Lukas Truniger is a media artist, composer and electronic musician, who engages in the areas of multimedia installations, sculptural objects, performances and the creation of new musical instruments. He is fascinated by complexity and intangible processes in nature as well as in society, like emergence, language and (artificial) intelligence. For the exploration of their inherent aesthetics he applies self-made code and circuits, hijacked tools and objects of mass consumption. His work establishes singular experiences challenging the modalities of perception.
Born in Zürich (Switzerland), 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: Mapping Festival in Geneva (CH), Mirage Festival in Lyon (F), Pearl Art Museum in Shanghai (CN), Burning Man (US), Dark Circuits Festival in New York (US), 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).
