Jesper Just

Jesper Just: Some Draughty Window, video. Curated by Kim McAleese and Eoin Dara, in collaboration with Outburst Queer Arts Festival. 16 - 24 November 2012.

Opening hours: Tues- Fri 1-5pm, Sat 11am-3pm.
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 Jesper 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.
