Jesper Just

Jesper Just lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Since the late 1990s, he has been producing videos in which he questions the social aspects of male bonding through the exploration of human and loving relationships. Both sensitive and humorous, his videos use the language, conventions, and aesthetics of Hollywood movies to rethink male representation and heighten the viewer’s level of expectations. Dance, song, and music play a narrative role in his works, as evidenced in This Love Is Silent, The Sweetest Embrace of All, No Man is an Island, and A Fine Romance. This year, the Christina Wilson Gallery in Copenhagen hosted his first major solo exhibition, A Fine Romance. Just’s works have been presented in a number of group exhibitions in Denmark and Norway, as well as in Berlin and at the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain, in 2003, as part of the exhibition Something About Love. His videos will be presented this fall at YYZ in Toronto.
