tarek atoui
* 1980, Líbano

 

Tarek Atoui es un artista y compositor electro-acústico que trabaja dentro del campo del performance sonoro. Su práctica abarca no solo el diseño de innovadores instrumentos musicales, sino también la organización de intervenciones, conciertos, performances y talleres multidisciplinarios. Con frecuencia su trabajo se desarrolla a partir de una extensa investigación acerca de la historia de la música y la instrumentación, que desemboca en performances colaborativos en los que explora nuevos modos de producción. Al centro de su obra se encuentra una constante reflexión acerca del instrumento y la naturaleza compleja, abierta y dinámica de la interpretación en vivo. Los performances que Atoui coordina son en gran medida improvisados, pero siempre están basados en una meticulosa revisión de archivos y colecciones sonoras. La educación y los vínculos sociales también son componentes integrales de sus proyectos, que exploran temas como, por ejemplo, la experiencia y percepción del sonido para las personas sordas. El trabajo de Atoui –realizado con computadoras e instrumentos electrónicos personalizados– hace referencia a las realidades sociales y políticas contemporáneas, pero también nos descubre la música y las nuevas tecnologías como aspectos clave de la expresión y la identidad.

 

Tarek Atoui nació en Líbano, en 1980 y se mudó a París en 1988, donde estudió música contemporánea y electrónica en el Conservatorio Nacional Francés de Reims. Sus  producciones y presentaciones recientes han tenido lugar en Tate Modern, Londres, Reino Unido (2016); la Fundación Louis Vuitton, Bois de Boulogne, Francia (2014); Bonniers Konsthall, Estocolmo, Suecia (2013); Norbergfestival, Norberg, Suecia (2013); Bik Van Der Pol, Utrecht, Bélgica (2011); New Museum, Nueva York, Estados Unidos (2010), Manarat Saadiyat, Emiratos Árabes Unidos (2009); La Maison Rouge, París, Francia (2009) y el Today’s Art Festival, Ámsterdam, Países Bajos (2007). Entre sus exposiciones más importantes se encuentra: Art or Sound, Fondazione Prada, Ca' Corner della Regina, Venecia, Italia (2014); Within, en la 11ª Bienal de Sharjah, Sharjah, Emiratos Árabes Unidos (2013); La Suite, Serpentine Gallery, Londres, Reino Unido (2012); Metastable Circuit, la Lutherie and Dimis Reconnected, dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel, Alemania (2012); Below 160, Salzburg Sommerszene Festival, Salzburgo, Austria (2011); Un-drum 3, La Maison Rouge, París, Francia (2010); entre otros.

 

Su trabajo ha sido parte de bienales como la Bienal de Marrakech, Marrakech, Marruecos (2016); 8ª Bienal de Berlín, Berlín, Alemania (2014); la 9ª Bienal de Mercosul, Porto Alegre, Brasil (2013); las 9ª y 11ª Bienales de Sharjah, Sharjah, Emiratos Árabes Unidos (2009 y 2013). Empty Cans, su taller pionero, ha sido presentado en Francia, Holanda, Líbano, Egipto y Estados Unidos, como parte de su residencia en Museum as Hub, del New Museum de Nueva York.
