Jesper Fabricius (3.8.57) is known for his many broad ranging activities in Danish art and culture. Both as an active artist using installation, painting, collage, film and photography and as a purveyor through the publishing house ‘Space Poetry‘, the magazine ‘Pist Protta‘ and as a curator for a wide range of exhibitions.
Everything in Jespers oeuvre appears simple and easy to attain, though containing an enormous complexity.
A disarming insecurity and at times childish joy with his work is replaced by a deeper experience and a wish for a more thorough interpretation of our time.
The organizing of his photography, the collages, paintings, the installations and even his publishing policy reaches beyond the formalistic.
There is an intimacy in the images and in the work as a whole and in the midst of this constant economizing with his means, the unpretentious, Jesper manages to create a matrix, a simplification, where space is investigated. This simplification is not to be confused with the clear cut, in fact the opposite, the images give way to new images, new connections.
