Artist / Composer
Alexander Tillegreen (1991 DK) is a visual artist and composer. He is a Master of Fine Arts Graduate of the Städelschule Academy of Fine Art in Frankfurt and Cooper Union Schoolof Art in New York. He also studied Art History and Sound Studies at the University of Copenhagen. In 2019-2020 he was the first artist in residence at Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics. His most recent work investigates the relationship between psychoacoustic sonic phenomena and their potential to reflect and awaken the listener’s own linguistic and cultural situationality, and subconscious, psychological fluidity. A recurring element of his work is the exploration of different layers of meaning and connections between the visual, the sculptural and the sonic. Within these seams he works with several different media such as sculpture, graphics, painting, installation and performance and spatial sound. His work has been subject to numerous solo and group exhibitions, most recently at Museum Tinguely in Basel, Museum FuturDome in Milan, and O-Overgaden Institute of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen. He regularly performs at festivals and conducts listening sessions and presentations at conferences. His first solo album In words is released at Rastermedia.
