Vinyl, Terror & Horror

(Camilla Sørensen b. 1978 / Greta Christensen b. 1977)

 

In Vinyl, Terror & Horror's sculptures, installations and performances, the artist duo, consisting of Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen, evoke feelings of fear, fascination, and uncertainty.

 

Turntable deconstruction and rearrangement of the vinyl media in all imaginative ways is an essential part of their art practice. Their works are obscene and alluring, often taking form as an assembly of music from horror films of the 1960'es combined with a dramatic light setting and sculptures constructed of vinyl record players, loudspeakers and interior furniture such as cupboards, chests of drawers, tables etc.

 

Vinyl, Terror & Horror are working in the field of cinematic soundscapes with a high tolerance level for possible hi-fi disasters. Sound is often the starting point for experiencing their work. It opens the show and introduces us to the absurd narrative that question and distort our perception of reality.

 

Using theatrical effects their works tell abstract stories, playing on an irrational fear. Familiar objects are slightly twisted and morphed into new, unfamiliar forms. A thematic reference to Sigmund Freud's term "Unheimlich" here becomes clear.

 

The soundscapes create a narrative that together with the objects create a participative experience for the audience. They are invited to participate in an enveloping sculptural horror show involving both exhibition space and audience.

 

The duo, Vinyl, Terror & Horror, is a collaboration between Camilla Sørensen, born 1978, Lemvig, Denmark and Greta Christensen, born 1977, Haderslev, Denmark. They live and work in Berlin. Both graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Art, Copenhagen in 2007/2008. They have exhibited at, amongst others, Malmø Kunsthal (SE), Rodasten Kunsthal (SE), Horsens Kunstmuseum (DK), Museet for Samtidskunst, Roskilde (DK) and Temporäre Kunsthalle, Berlin (DE). In 2015 they received Horsens Kunstmuseum's Art Prize, in whose collection they are also represented.
