Jesper Just (born 1974 in Copenhagen) has won international acclaim for his visually beguiling videos.
Preferring a process more aligned with the cinematic to a low-fi aesthetic or documentary one, Just
creates choreographed and grand works of art. His productions makes use of mesmerizing elements
of grand landscape painting as well as a hypersensitive and acute portrayal of human emotions.
This Is a Landscape of Desire highlights the most significant pieces from the past 10 years of Just’s
career along with a new piece also titled This Is a Landscape of Desire. The exhibition is organized by
HEART— The Herning Museum of Contemporary Art, Denmark and will be accompanied by a fully
illustrated exhibition catalog with contributions by the exhibition curator Carolina Corbetta, and assistant
curator Michael Bank Christoffersen of the Herning Museum of Contemporary Art.
