Florian Hecker, born in 1975, lives in Kissing and Vienna.
In his installations, performances and publications, Hecker deals with specific compositional developments of post-war modernity, electro-acoustic music as well as other, non-musical disciplines. He dramatizes space, time and self-perception in his sonic works by isolating specific auditory events in their singularity, thus stretching the boundaries of their materialization. Their objectual autonomy is exposed while simultaneously evoking sensations, memories and associations in an immersive intensity. Exhibitions include dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel (2012); MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2010); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2010); Bawag Contemporary, Vienna (2009) and Sadie Coles HQ, London (2008). Recent performances include Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2012); MIT Saarinen Chapel, Cambridge, MA and Push and Pull, A two-day performance event, Tate Modern, London (2011); Instal, Tramways, Glasgow, UK (2010) and No night No day, in collaboration with Cerith Wyn Evans, 53rd Venice Biennial, Italy (2009).
