A matter of Sound - Jacob Kirkegaard

Sound, as an essential material in artistic creation, has acquired its own identity in recent years that manifests itself through the genre known as  Sound Art. These works affect the importance of listening as a medium, for a long time under-rated, capable of revealing imperceptible realities.

This is where the work of the Danish artist Jacob Kirkegaard can be found, where he focuses on aspects such as space or acoustic perception, leading us into the practices and aesthetics of this discipline. From the resonances of abandoned rooms at Chernobyl or from the landscapes of Fukushima, to the stunning crackling of Greenland glaciers captured with different recording systems (hydrophones, contact microphones, electromagnetic receivers, etc.), Kirkegaard makes us a part of a world in constant vibration through his works full of meanings.
