Gregor Hildebrandt’s pictures, installations, and objects draw from music, film, literature, and art history. Using the magnetic tape from audio and video cassettes, he glues hundreds of strips together to create his Tonbilder “sound pictures” that allude to Hildegard Knef, Wilhelm Furtwängler, The Cure, and other music sources. In small sketches, large format canvasses, or the covering of an entire surface of a building’s façade, Hildebrandt’s Tonbilder transform audio recordings into a visual experience.
Gregor Hildebrandt was born in 1974 in Bad Homburg, Germany. He lives and works in Berlin.
