Artist Bio

Through the course of media artist Quintus Glerum’s life he has tried to get a better understanding of himself by mirroring his image to that of machines. While our tools are created for a specific purpose, humans don’t have the same luxury. Why do I act the way I do and what am I supposed to do? What does it mean to be human and does it even make sense to ask these questions? Getting strangled in endless streams of reoccurring questions shaped through both conscious and unconscious actions caused Glerum to perceive life as a kind of natural information processing-system.

Comparison has become the strategy at the base of Quintus Glerum’s practice. He commonly takes human specific elements and portrays them through the simplified lense of a machine. The act of simplification results in comedic works that both question and highlight the strange relationship between humans and their tools. He applies his background in animation (graduated with honors in 2018) to play with different realities and hypothetical worlds. Since he finished his masters degree in media arts and technology (graduated with honors in 2021) his practice moves between both the virtual and physical space, but always focusses on shaping narratives
