Jacob Kirkegaard records acoustic and visual properties of carefully selected environments to generate spatial installations, sound sculpture and photography. His works reveal unheard and unseen phenomena, and present listening (to both sound and imagery) as a means of experiencing the world. Kirkegaard has recorded environments as different as subterranean geyser vibrations, empty rooms in Chernobyl, Arctic calving glaciers and tones generated by the human inner ear itself.
Born in Denmark (1975), Kirkegaard graduated from the Media Art Academy in Cologne in 2006. He has exhibited at numerous institutions throughout the world, including MoMA, The Hood Museum, LOUISIANA, ARoS, KW, The Menil Collection, Rothko Chapel, Aichi Triennale, and Mori Art Museum. Kirkegaard's work is in the collection of LOUISIANA Museum of Modern Art.
