LAZNIA 1 2014 - Grischa Lichtenberger
Jaskółcza 1 Str., GDAŃSK – DOLNE MIASTO
4th October 2014, 8.00 pm
Free entrance
Electronic music producer, installation and visual artist living in Berlin.
He grew up in a withdrawn farmhouse near Bielefeld. His artistic approach developed from surveying the landscape. Landscape, in this sense, is understood not only as the picturesque or sublime recreational facility of nature, but as an interaction between the traces of biographical history and the material concreteness of the present surroundings. Technology appears for him not as the perfect, mathematically defined form, but as an index of failure and error, as a shadow of the spooking despairs and desires of its producer, engraved in the finiteness of the concrete form to be embraced by the attentive.
In his sitespecific multimedia installations Lichtenberger stages spatial relations between metaphorically loaded and substantially defined elements to build a sculptural environment in which material conditions of objects, their function as display and their underlying symbolical dimensions interact.
In 2009 he released “~treibgut” ep as part of the “unun” series on Raster-Noton, followed by his debut album “and iv (inertia)” in 2012. He played audiovisual live sets on international festivals and realized several commissioned installations on both local and international sites.
The concert is under the patronage of the music website Trzecia Fala.
