Jacob Kirkegaard


Jacob Kirkegaard has received international attention for his artistic ventures into "hidden" acoustic spheres: Using accelerometers and other scientific equipment, he explores those resonant spaces that usually remain inaccessible to sense perception.

Born in 1975 in Denmark, Kirkegaard is currently residing in Cologne, Germany, where he graduated with a master's degree from the Academy of Media Arts. He has also taught at the Royal Academy of Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark.

While his sound art is released by the British label Touch, his installations have been presented, among other places, at Kiasma in Finland, at Diapason Gallery in New York City and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denmark. Among his numerous collaborators are Jim Thirlwell (Aka Foetus), CM von Hausswolff, Ann Lislegaard and Philip Jeck.
