Lukas Truniger is an artist and 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 invisible processes in nature as well as in society. For the exploration of their inherent aesthetics he applies self-made code and circuits, hacked tools, misused instruments and objects of mass consumption. His work establishes singular experiences challenging the modalities of perception.
Born in Zürich (Switzerland), he obtained a music degree from the Robert Schumann School of Music and Media 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 in the framework of international exhibitions and festivals, amongst others:
Burning Man 2018 (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 (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).
