Today, we have the pleasure of speaking with great visual artist Gregor Hildebrandt (born in Bad Homburg), based in Berlin. Hildebrandt is renowned for his ability to transform a vast musical repertoire of VHS tapes, cassettes, and vinyl records, as well as a stash of musical memorabilia, into a variety of artworks, including sculptures, paintings, photographs, and installations. Gregor art pieces are known for their intricate montages, which seamlessly blend pictorial associations from different spheres. During our discussion, Hildebrandt will give us insight into his latest project, which features the art catalogue “Documenta IX in Kassel 1992” and an installation called “Orphic Shadows.” This piece was presented at the Wentrup Gallery in 2015 and promises to be an exciting topic of conversation.
