House of Horrors, 2020
Colour video, sound
A genius of Jack O’Lantern summoned to the House of Horrors guides us through a series of traumas, both real and imagined, in a freight train of terror.
Stefan Tcherepnin born 1977 in Boston, USA. He lives and works in Kingston, New York, USA.
Stefan Tcherepnin is a mixed media artist and composer. His work often takes the form of immersive, meta-narrative installations that integrate painting, sculpture, video and found objects. Tcherepnin’s approach is inherently collaborative and he frequently unites with other artists, musicians and writers to create environments in which spontaneous actions and performances may unfold.
Alongside his visual art practice, Tcherepnin is a composer and performer of avant-garde music. His critically acclaimed recording of visionary composer Maryanne Amacher’s Petra for Two Pianos (alongside pianist Marianne Schroeder) was released by Blank Forms Editions in 2019, as was his band Afuma’s debut album, Songs From the Shore. His duo PSST (with drummer Paul Sigerhall) also released a cassette, Real Gospel, on Stockholm imprint STYX/PTROLEUM in 2019.
