Gregor Hildebrandt

Something happened around the year 2000. That is, suddenly our favorite analogue formats passed their cultural relevance on to their digital cousins. Gregor Hildebrandt is part of a generation that took these materials and transformed them from near obsolescence into art. This should not be mistaken as a simple montage of nostalgia, however. Far from it. Hildebrandt’s works pull art history into a complex discourse with the worlds of popular music and film.

Working pre-recorded cassette tape and vinyl records into a practice that spans painting, sculpture and installation, the Berlin-based artist has built his reputation over the past decade by imbuing the formal structures of Minimalism with an intriguing layer of imperceptible sound.

Hildebrandt’s direct references may be personal, but his appeal is international—he recently had acclaimed exhibitions at Galerie Perrotin during Art Basel Hong Kong and at Wentrup Gallery for Gallery Weekend Berlin.

Liebe die ganze Nacht, 2008

A piece of old cassette tape placed to form a veil over the image of Gloria Swanson, Gregor Hildebrandt’s Liebe die ganze Nacht, 2008 is highly representative of the Berlin-based artist’s distinct visual language.

Unfolding into a complex discourse that reveals the limitations of surface—and first impressions—the hand-colored digital print that forms the base of Liebe die ganze Nacht, 2008 carries a piece of magnetic tape with a hidden message, a snippet of the song Zarah by experimental Berlin band Malaria! Paired with Swanson's Expressionist-era glamour, this imperceptible sound becomes a multifaceted, silent soundtrack.

A vigil for a time when Germany’s artistic talent left the country, a celebration of fresh creative power, all mixed with a small verse to beg the question of motive, this Amazing Edition is signed, numbered, and ready to delivered either framed and unframed as part of an edition of 50.
