David Mathúna (b.1991, Cork, IE) is a multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in Berlin (DE). Exploring generative and improvised processes, David’s practice spans video, photo-manipulation, sound design, illustration, data visualisation and performance, with a specific focus on installation.
His primary conceptual inquiries explore the oscillatory relationships between the individual and the collective, between an inner sense of self and a performed social identity, foregrounding the role of the artwork as a point of departure for dialectic engagement.
David completed his BA in Fine Art at the Crawford College of Art & Design in 2014 and has since worked professionally as a stage designer, content creator, VJ, musician, lighting operator, sound engineer and music video producer. He is a member of Ampersand Union and Foghorn artist collectives, of Chalk it Down Productions theatre company and of Langfellows promotions. He performs and releases music under his own name and moniker Sorica, as well as part of improvised performance groups KENL, Not Earth, The Council For The Dark Arts Orchestra and Bhailiú.
