Niels Munk Plum (1992, Sønderborg DK) Lives and works between Copenhagen, Oslo and Malmö.

He works with staging narratives through performance, sound, photography, installation and text.




Niels Munk Plum works with unfixing expectations to already existing systems of logic. 

Through his stagings he questions the distance in between reality and fiction, but also how we perceive a context of art, - looking at aesthetic gestures in contrast to given social patterns, which we manoeuvre within daily. 

Plum’s work, conceptual in nature, interweaves text, photography, sound and installations into several parallel narratives staged through performances or participatory acts. The work acts like a catalyst for new ideas to enter the space and exists in an open landscape created by the artist, however with a position which constantly must be re-evaluated through the gaze of viewer.
