Sergei Tcherepnin

Sergei Tcherepnin

Sergei Tcherepnrin (b. 1975 Boston, USA) is an artist living and working in New York. Tcherepnin is an artist operating at the intersections of sound, sculpture and theater.

Attaching synthesizers, computers and amplifiers to small surface transducers he orchestrates complex multi-channel compositions in which objects are transformed into speakers. Often invoking queer, hybridized characters such as the Listening Cactus, the Maize Mantis, or the figure of the Pied Piper, Tcherepnin’s scenarios cultivate play between things and bodies, compelling the audience to develop a “score” for handling these animated objects. These interactions suggest new possibilities for intimacy with sound, where “listening” involves a more expansive state of activity: listening by touching, listening by opening, listening by feeling, listening by harnessing, or listening by walking.

Tcherepnin’s performances and installations include the Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Pavilion of Georgia at the 55th Venice Biennale, the Kitchen, New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the 30th São Paulo Biennial. He was a Villa Romana Fellow in 2014.
