Boris de Klerk

Boris de Klerk (Amsterdam, 1998) is a performance- and sound-artist based in Amsterdam.




In (untitled) a technician-like figure takes the stage. He starts plugging and unplugging the lights, testing the sound and getting everything to work. But slowly but surely the technology starts to error and mingle with eachother. The sound of a crashing laptop starts inciting a light at the other end of the stage, a moving head won’t stop turning around and the strobes start flashing like crazy. An abstract music concert with an aggressive light-show unfolds, using the ‘error’ as it’s material, as an instrument.

(untitled) was made at the Maastricht Institute of Performative arts, under the artistic supervision of Wim Jansen in 2019.
