Vinyl, Terror & Horror
1978 · Denmark
Vinyl, Terror & Horror, the artistic collaboration between Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen, have placed the vinyl record at the center of their process and, in doing so, have conjured a body of studio work and sound/performance installations that are designed ultimately to engage – or even unhinge – the viewer.
Tapping into the violence of destruction and fear that they often soften with a touch of humor, Vinyl’s creations attempt to tap into the power of music as a means of expression and connection. Deconstructing the elements of music – whether it is melting a vinyl record or slicing speakers in half – Vinyl creates such over-the-top installations in an act of ultimate theatricality akin to a camp classic horror film of the past. Add in the dramatic swell of music, and Vinyl’s works can conjure an incredible array of emotions.
Sørensen and Greta Christensen both hail from Denmark and studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Art but now base their collective in Berlin. They became friends while at the Academy and initially developed the concept for Vinyl, Terror & Horror while collaborating on soundscapes during their student days. Their works have been exhibited across Scandinavia, and they were celebrated in 2015 with the receipt of the Horsens Kunstmuseum’s Art Prize.
