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

He works with staging the body and language in a performance-based discourse where the aim is to queer the self from the use of already existing logic.



~ ~ ~ ~  


Niels Munk Plum’s works takes place through subverting the classical structures of art production, and aims to implement a stronger sense of autonomy within the receiving subject.

This is done by horizontalization; creating an emphasis on process instead of the finished work. The intention and agenda brings the audience in to a situation within the work, that will exist as a moment of exchange and collaboration, still held together by the structure of the initial artistic plan.

The situation turns into a stage for us to use our fantasy to cross material-, social-, or conventional borders.

Plum’s works often appears as performative, however the content also establishes itself through a score of images, objects or words installed to create a physical dialogue set in relation to the artist and the audience.
