ERIK BÜNGER - SONGS OF LOVE AND HATE

SCREENING - ÉCRAN D'ART

The Swedish artist, composer, musician and writer Erik Bünger (1976) works with re-contextualising existing media in performances, installations and web projects. In Gospels, sections of Hollywood interviews are removed from their original contexts, interacting to form a new, seemingly coherent whole. Yet these pre-existing works frequently conflict; Bünger explores the disjunction between replaying and experiencing in his A Lecture on Schizophonia. This simultaneously analytical and performative work highlights the relationship between sound and perceived ’reality’, using popular references and familiar footage including Barak Obama and Woody Allen. Similar tensions are exposed in God Moves on the Water, in which two songs about the sinking of the Titanic are combined to form a third narrative. In the Belgian premiere of The Third Man, the negative power of music is explored. Displacing and recombining familiar material, Bünger challenges the separation between authentic and simulated experiences.
