Adrienne Teicher is a sonic/somatic artist working in Berlin. Her latest work Insecure explores the encounter with these roaming dangers of Covid and Climate Change from the perspective of isolation, which are not only natural phenomena, but also matrices of power, and landscapes of the mind.
In lockdown, Adrienne Teicher created four A/V works documenting the anxiety she experienced in her body, while also attempting a personal and systemic critique, in the hope of performing an alchemical transformation from a body in isolation into a subject in solidarity with others.
The source of many of Teicher’s aesthetic and conceptual frames is Hyenaz – a long term collaboration with fellow producer Kathryn Fischer. Recent works in their performative series Foreign Bodies include Ex Situ, a sonic sculpture made in collaboration with the Gambian singer Yusuph Suso, and Perimeter, a song, video artwork and VR gallery that drew together the psychobiographies of HYENAZ and the famed Berlin performance artists Mmakgosi Kgabi, Martini Cherry Furter and Simon(è) Jaikiriuma Paetau.
As well as their own performative rituals, the pair have led the Clusterfuck ensemble for electroclash performance artist Peaches, and created sound designs for writer/directors Sivan Ben Yishai and Sasha Marianna Salzmann, at Kampnagel, Münchner Kammerspiele, Maxim Gorki Theatre and Royal Festival Hall.
The pair also provide location sound and post production for fictional and documentary film including Yony Leyser’s Queercore.
