Lukas Truniger is a new media and sound artist. 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 our 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 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 in institutions such as the 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: MMMAD Festival (Madrid), Athens Digital Arts Festival, Blooming Festival (Pergola), Light Art Grindelwald, Ars Electronica (Linz), City Sonic (Louvain-la-Neuve), Mapping Festival (Geneva), Mirage Festival (Lyon), Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert (Nevada), Retune Festival (Berlin), Lethargy Festival (Zürich), Dark Circuits Festival (New York City), Variation Media Art Fair (Paris), Die Digitale (Düsseldorf), Sonica (Glasgow), International Digital Arts Biennial (BIAN) (Montreal), International Symposium for Electronic Arts (ISEA) (Hong Kong), Festival 100% (Paris), Marrakech Biennale and E-Fest (Tunis).
