Antoine Bertin is an artist who works around the boundaries between documentary and fiction, the poetic and the political, the living and the artificial.
Bertin trained as a sound engineer at Ecole Normale Supérieure Louis Lumière and graduated with an MA in Sound Art from London College of Communication. He currently works in London, Brussels and Paris.
Antoine Bertin was artist in residence on Sound and Music’s Embedded program with the Forestry Commission England. He is the editor of online magazine Soundry, which functions similarly to an arts organisation in that creative people from all kinds of disciplines are invited to develop new work, and generate discussion between artists, designers and engineers around the subject of listening. This has also informed an MA workshop at the London College of Communications (part of London’s University of the Arts), which invites the students to test their listening, and explores artistic practices outside of a traditional arts context.
His recent projects include ‘12 hours in the life of a fox’, an ear casting and sound recording studio, a fox ear inspired radio-telescope dish and binaural sound design for ‘In The Eyes of an Animal’ – a virtual reality experience by Marshmallow Laser Feast.
Antoine Bertin’s work consists of audio narratives combining elements of broadcast, walk, sculpture and publication. Bertin brings technology together with storytelling and is curious about our relationship with the environment, the ‘unreachable’ and the idea of progress. His work has been shown at Tate Britain, Palais de Tokyo and Sonar+D and he has collaborated with Marshmallow Laser Feast, The Guardian and NTS Radio.
