Cory Arcangel

Exhibition Genk

Through hacking, manipulating, recycling and reconfiguring, Cory Arcangel (US, °1978) turns technology into art. He makes work in many different mediums, from music, film, painting and performance to video games, websites and software. He is best known for the appropriation and modifying of cultural idioms from pop music and youth culture, such as Super Mario or MTV. With his ironic touch he manages to mine the best bits of absurdity from the internet.
