Danish video artist Jesper Just is the subject of a solo show at Copenhagen’s Herning Museum of Contemporary Art.
This is a Landscape of Desire
Jesper Just’s career has spanned over 10 years, and the Herning Museum of Contemporary Art has shown a real commitment to his art. His second solo show opens on the 9th February in Copenhagen, This is a Landscape of Desire, curated by Caroline Corbetta.
At the centre of this retrospective solo show lies This is a Landscape of Desire. A new project presented as monumental video installation that enables “a spatial experience”, where the powerful correlation between the emotional movement of Jesper Just’s characters and that of the viewers is established.
The artist’s imagination via the language of visual arts, cinema and architecture result in video installations with a strong sculptural presence which engages viewers on a visual, but also psychological level, as well as incorporating them physically.
Jesrepr Just’s video art and his concept of performance in terms of location, language, music sex and gender has resulted in him being chosen as Denmark’s representative at Venice Biennale in 2013.
