Biography from Ketterer Kunst, Munich:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Gregor Hildebrandt was born in Bad Homburg in 1974.  Hildebrandt studied from 1999 to 2002 at the University of the Arts Berlin and received a scholarship from the German Study Centre in Venice the subsequent year.  In his newly adopted home of Berlin, Hildebrandt together with the concept sculptor Alicja Kwade, became one of the most successful couples of the Berlin art scene.  Gregor was then represented by Galerie Wentrup and quickly became a popular shooting star.

His artistic trademark is the exploitation and processing of art, involving the form of audio and video tapes in his works.  The artist uses a kind of `Rohmaterial` in his art; blank cassettes and audio or video tape recordings that in the digital age are already extinct technology in the music and film industry but are a substantive center of his work.

Hildebrandt not only creates in strictly geometrical arrangement with those uniform tracks on tape meters, but he creates sculptural pieces from old vinyl records.  Since 2000 he continuously works at his tape boxes, on their face, as if by the puzzle-like juxtaposition of the cassette back portraits of theater icons composed about Romy Schneider under the title 'Songs for Romy`.

Hildebrandt's art makes the Errungeschaften geometischen the abstraction of modernity on its own and extends them by the artistic fascination of pure imagination, because after all, we're the music video and tape recordings that run as brilliant tracks across the screen, not hear, even if they are still visible as a visual homage to the past to become Hildebrandt's poetic creations.
