The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul is pleased to present Jesper Just: This is a Landscape of Desire, in celebration of 55 years of diplomatic ties between Korea and Denmark. The exhibition, which is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Korea, sheds light on 13 major works from the internationally-acclaimed video artist’s oeuvre in the last decade.
Produced for this exhibition, This is a Landscape of Desire (2013) features two women, whose relationship to each other is unknown, wandering about in wasteland led by their desires. Two large screens face and engage each other in complex communication in Nameless Spectacle (2011), which is charged with intricate emotional and psychological conditions between a middle-aged woman with a disability and a young man who pursues her. The exhibition also presents Sirens of Chrome (2010), A Voyage in Dwelling (2008), and Just’s latest work What a Feeling (2014), publicly shown for the first time through this exhibition.
