Artist Talk #43: “Hungry Tunes” by William Engelen

For the first artist talk of 2010 we are happy to present the current Artist in Resident
supported by the FONDS BKVB of Holland, William Engelen. William will stay in
Japan between January and April.
William Engelen works in various media including drawing, sound pieces and large-scale
outdoor installations. He is well known for sound-based works and his use of graphical
scores which often develop through close collaborations with classical musicians. He has
also developed complex and humorous sound installations using the weather or bird song
as the triggers for the work, and made a series of sound pieces which are composed from
the diaries of the artist or musicians. William Engelen works mostly in-situ.
In this talk William will introduce his work over the last twenty years using slides and sound.
The talk will be in English with consecutive translation into Japanese by AIT staff Roger McDonald.
William would like to enlist the assistance of attendees for a new sound piece he is preparing
while in Tokyo – details will be explained at the talk!

William Engelen (b. 1964, Holland). Lives and works in Berlin and Rotterdam.
He has participated in the 2005 Documenta, and has had a solo exhibition “Verstrijken voor ensemble”,
at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam in 2008.
