Sound is both the conceptual and material focal point of Alexander Brix Tillegreen’s artistic practice and research. Within this frame of reference, he also works with several different media such as sculpture, graphics, painting, installation and performance. A recurring element of his work is the exploration of different layers of meaning and connections between the visual, the sculptural and the sonic.
His most recent work investigates the relationship between psychoacoustic sonic phenomena and their potential to reflect and awaken the listener’s own linguistic and cultural situationality, and subconscious, psychological fluidity.
Alexander Brix Tillegreen (b. 1991, Copenhagen) is a graduate of the Städelschule in Frankfurt, Germany and Cooper Union School of Art, New York, USA. He also studied Art History and Sound Studies at the University of Copenhagen.
Since 2019, Tillegreen has been conducting interdisciplinary artistic research in collaboration with a number of researchers in the fields of psychology, musicology, neuroscience, voice aesthetics and linguistics at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics in Frankfurt.
