    PRÆSENTATION AF BILLEDKUNSTNERISK PRAKSIS & VÆRKPRODUKTION: ELSEBETH JØRGENSEN

    Født 1970, Ringkøbing. Bor og arbejder i København, DK
    Uddannelse: Billedkunstner. Det Kgl. Danske Kunstakademi, Kbh, DK: 1995-2002 ( Se Curriculum for udstillinger og bibliografi)

    JKort introduktion til kunstnerisk praksis:
    Jeg arbejder konceptuelt, steds- og arkivbaseret med fotografi, lyd, video, tekst og installation i forskellige montageformer. For mig er montage en kunstnerisk optik, et udtryk og metodisk forhold, hvori jeg kan arbejde med min interesse for både det billedlige, det sproglige, det tidslige og det rumlige.

    Mine værker bygger på lang tids indsamling af materiale i forskellige historiske billedarkiver blandet med mine egne visuelle, tekstlige og auditive registreringer. Værkerne er montager, hvor jeg sammenstiller egen fotografisk dokumentation, lydoptagelser og filmisk iscenesættelse med bearbejdet arkivstof, egen tekst og fiktionsdele. Nogle værker udvikles også til audiowalk-, bog- og webformat eller til udendørs offentlige rum. De kan også være ”udsmykninger”, hvor der ofte i selve produktionen er foregået dialog med de mennesker som har et forhold til stedet, hvor værkerne installeres.

    SHORT INTRODUCTION TO ARTISTIC PRACTICE:

    Visual Artist. Born: 1970 Ringkøbing, Denmark. Works and lives in Copenhagen. Education: 1995-2000: Departments for Visual Arts, The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, DK. 2000-2002: MA in Fine Art and Art Theory. Department for Art Theory, The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, DK. (See curriculum for exhibitions and bibliography)

    I work in a conceptual, research- and site related way. I work with montage both as method, concept and form. My exhibitions include installations, photography, video, texts and sound which is based on a long term research at historical archives collecting material parallel to my own visual documentation, taped interviews and writings. My interest is to investigate the meaning of Site – History – Narrative Structures and how memory is produced as a constant flow between cultural and individual processes. In this context I work with images and language as interdependent elements in ideas about how cultural memory and sites are complex constructions of fictions and facts.

    Since 1997 I have also collaborated with other visual artists like ex. Sofie Thorsen, Pia Rönicke, Karoline Larsen, Kristina Ask, Claus Handberg and Jørgen Michaelsen on different exhibitions. Together with artist Pia Rönicke and curators Jacob Fabricius & Lotte Boesen we founded in 2003 a project-space „APPENDIKS“ in Copenhagen. - An archive in progress, office and open forum for discussing and presenting different artistic and curatorial practises. The space contained a videotek, artistbooks-library, bookshop, research-archive, seminar-situations and exhibitions.
    I have been visiting teacher at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Basic Studies, Copenhagen & The Academy of Fine Arts, Århus. Also external advisor for graduating students and censor at The Academy of Fine Arts, Århus. Have been working 2002-2007 as assistant at The Department for Art theory, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen. At the moment I work as associate professor at The Jutland Art Academy in Århus, DK.
