Kurt Hentschläger (AT) creates audiovisual installations and performances. Between 1992 and 2003 he worked within the artist duo Granular Synthesis. Hentschläger’s work is characteristically visceral and immersive, as in ZEE and FEED, with extreme perceptual effects composed from light, sound and fog. These works literally transport the viewer into other worlds. Hentschläger’s CLUSTER series builds on the uncanny by portraying 3D representations of humanoid creatures that can only exist in dynamic flux, swirling and flowing like the wind, apparently unhinged from the screen on which they are projected. Hentschläger’s most recent, emerging body of work centres on how we perceive nature in the 21st century.
