ARTISTIC STATEMENT June 2021


Niels Munk Plum works with staging the body and language in an open discourse where the aim is to queer the self from the use of already existing logic, and implement a stronger sense of autonomy within the receiving subject.

 

Creating an emphasis on the process, and how a work of art becomes something from nothing, Plum’s works often appears as performative wherein the content establishes itself through a score of objects, words or images.

 

Movements and gestures, through artist’s or the spectators eyes and bodies will matter in altering the exhibition experience from a hierarchical set of visual aesthetics, to a tool of communication, and a catalyst for new ideas and discussions.
