SOUND + VISION   STEFAN TCHEREPNIN
INTERVIEW BY JEFFREY GRUNTHANER

Sound + Vision is a site-specific podcast examining the interconnection of visual art and music presented by WINSTON TAYLOR RECORDS. Moderated by Jeffrey Grunthaner, the series invites artists to reflect on and discuss how music has impacted their creative lives. The second installment of the series features Stefan Tcherepnin.


Stefan Tcherepnin (b. 1977) is a Brooklyn-based visual artist, composer and musician. His work often employs music and performance in conjunction with sculpture, painting, video and architecture, taking the form of installations that convey multiple narratives. He frequently collaborates with other artists and from 2007-2011, he was a member of the art action collective, Grand Openings. Alongside artist Josef Strau, Tcherepnin initiated The Metaphysical Store and Narrative Gallery in various iterations, including at Paramount Ranch (LA), Übersetzungsbuero (Berlin), Frieze London and The Liverpool Biennial. He has also composed scores for two musicals, in collaboration with artist Ei Arakawa and writer Dan Poston. Paris & Wizard: The Musical (an adaptation of the eponymous novel by Seth Price) was premiered in 2013 at MoMA, and How to DISappear in America: The Musical in 2016 at the Berlin Biennial. Tcherepnin collaborated with artists Emanuel Rossetti and Tobias Madison to create Drip Event (2013), an immersive composition/installation that included weekly flooding of upper floor of The Power Station. The resonating sounds of water dripping through the ceiling into the main gallery were later recorded and employed on a double-LP, which in turn became a catalog for the exhibition and debut record of their band, Solar Lice.

Tcherepnin frequently works with composer, Wally Blanchard, who has composed soundtracks to all of Tcherepnin’s films, including Learning Movie (2014), Forgetting Movie (2016) and The Mad Masters (2018).
A recording of Tcherepnin’s 2018 performance alongside Swiss pianist, Marianne Schroeder, of Maryanne Amacher’s Petra (1991) for two pianos, was released by Blank Forms Editions in 2019 to critical acclaim. The debut recording of his band, Afuma (with Taketo Shimada), is forthcoming on the same label. Tcherepnin is also one half of Swedish psych-skate-jazz duo, PSST (with Paul Sigerhall), whose album Real Gospel was released on PTRoleum records earlier this year.
Tcherepnin has had recent solo exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Freedman Fitzpatrick (LA), Galerie Francesca Pia (Zurich) and Real Fine Arts (NY). His forthcoming solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Zurich will open in fall, 2019.
Tcherepnin is represented by Galerie Francesca Pia and Freedman Fitzpatrick.
