Gilles Aubry is a Swiss sound artist, musician and researcher living in Berlin. His practice is based on a performative approach to field recording, documents and historical sources, often collaboratively. He critically addresses listening, sound practices, music, technology and environmental voices, examining their relations to power structures and ideologies in various contexts.
Using formats such as installation, performance, film, publication and radio, he creates works that playfully reconfigure materials and discourses into speculative spaces for shared experience and reflection. He currently teaches decolonial and environmental sound theory at the Berlin University of the Arts (UDK).
He has toured and exhibited internationally, including Festival Visions du Réel Nyon (2019), HKW Berlin (2018), Casablanca Art Biennale (2018), Tuned City Festival Ancient Messene (2018), Le 18 Marrakech (2018), documenta14 (2017), Tinguely Museum Basel (2017), Alhamra Art Center Lahore (2017), Café Oto London (2017), Kunstraum Bethanien Berlin (2016), Clark House Mumbai (2016), Art Council Karachi (2016), Skulpturenmuseum Marl (2016), FMAC Geneva (2016), MAGA Museum Gallarate (2015), Kunstmuseum Lucerne (2015), Khoj Art Center New Delhi (2015), TUSK Festival Newcastle (2015), Tsonami Festival Valparaiso (2014), Savvy Contemporary Berlin (2014), Friedmann Gallery New York (2014), Marrakech Biennale (2014), LEAP art space Berlin (2013), HeK Basel (2013), Camera Austria Graz (2012), House of World Cultures Berlin (2012), Kontraste Festival Krems (2011), MACBA Barcelona (2010)..
