Kirsten Stromberg
oil paint interventions

For the project Post Elettronica Kirsten Stromberg presents a series of oil paint interventions on The Financial Times newspaper dissolving 'subject' and reflecting on the fear of nothingness and the construction of self in contemporary material culture.

Her work investigates issues of representation and perception through various media from sound to video, collage, installation and painting. Often reflecting on social and political issues, she questions the construction of ideological thinking specifically in dominant material culture, exploring the poetic and complex aspects of human experience.

graduated a Senior Fellow from Dartmouth College focusing on experimental music, sound sculpture, sound installation and painting. In 2005 she completed her MFA in Arts and Consciousness Studies at John F. Kennedy University in Berkeley.

In tribute to John Cage, the project POST ELETTRONICA investigates territories of "post-electronic" experimentation revealing Cage’s contemporary inheritance and presenting artists who share a dramatic and gestural use of new technologies. Hybrid works that combine music, video, performance, sculpture, sound, noise become vocabularies of a composite language in which the management of advanced software is combined with the artifact in an attempt to dissolve the conceptual approach towards the involvement of the viewer.
