Jesper Just’s videos invite audiences into sumptuous worlds full of intrigue and suspense.
These emotionally charged pieces contain all of the tropes of high production cinematic works – meticulous and lavish set design, dramatic lighting, and sweeping musical scores and sound effects – but refuse to adhere to any linear narrative conventions. Just’s work is deliberately ambiguous and open ended, calling for a viewer to inject personal meanings into these dream-like scenarios.
Selected for OUTBURST, Some Draughty Window punctures with a disarming beauty, stereotypical conceptions of gender, sexuality, and age.
This will be the first presentation of Just’s work in Northern Ireland, and comes at a time when the artist is beginning preparations to represent Denmark at the Venice Biennale in 2013.
