How can sound be made visible? This question is repeatedly asked in the practice of the artist Armin Lorenz Gerold (*1981 Graz, lives in Berlin). For the performance and installation Verstärkung (Amplification) (2021), a new work commissioned by HALLE FÜR KUNST Steiermark, Gerold created an audiovisual system of sculptures and flat monitors. His multi-disciplinary practice, which can be fundamentally defined as an investigation of photography and sound, transforms classical exhibition contexts into acoustic landscapes. Gerold, whose formats also always establish points of reference to radio and streaming, allows his audience to immerse themselves into a meditative flow of language and sounds.
is an artist and composer.
His work has been presented at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, at LambdaLambdaLambda, Prishtina; at fluent, Santander; mint, Stockholm; and the Gothenburg Biennial of Contemporary Art (in collaboration with Doireann O’ Malley). In spring 2021, a new radio play installation will be accompanied by an artist’s book published as part of the Ruisdael Fellowship the artist received.
Gerold releases pop music under his virtual alter ego wirefoxterrier, which is featured on the soundtrack of the LGBT teen drama SKAM Italia. The debut EP Radio Pristina was released in 2020.
