Some Draughty Window
Collaboration with Outburst Queer Arts Festival
Jesper Just. Curated by Kim McAleese and Eoin Dara
Ends 24 November 2012
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.
