Andersen's (DK)

Based in Copenhagen, Andersen’s opened in 2005 with a programme focused around Claus Andersen’s German connections; showcasing predominantly the artists in Berlin he was working with at that time, including Anselm Reyle, Olafur Eliasson, and Tomás Saraceno. Today the gallery represents a variety of emerging and established artists from all over the world.

Esben Weile Kjær (DK)

Spanning sculpture, video and performance, Esben Weile Kjær's work draws on the history of pop culture and pop music to explore themes of nostalgia, authenticity, and generational anxiety. In an attentive though reckless visual language, he investigates today’s event economy, often focusing on the aesthetics of the entertainment industry. His work attempts to not only mimic other cultural modes of performance (such as those found at raves, protests, press conferences) but becomes a performative iteration of pop culture in its own right.

Esben Weile Kjær (b.1992) lives and works in Copenhagen. Kjær is currently enrolled at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, from which he is due to graduate in 2022. Esben Weile Kjær has exhibited internationally, with recent performances taking place at a number of major European art institutions and festivals.
