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 investigate themes of nostalgia, authenticity, and generational anxiety. In an attentive though reckless visual language, he investigates today’s event economy, often focusing on marketing tactics and the aesthetics of the entertainment industry - mainly to consider art’s relationship to its surrounding cultural industries. As such, his work not only attempts to mimic other cultural modes of performance, but to become a form of performative pop culture in itself.

Esben Weile Kjær (b. 1992, Aarhus; DK) lives and works in Copenhagen. He graduated from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Music Management, Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2015 and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2022. The artist's work are included in the permanent collections of ARKEN Museum of Contemporary Art (Ishøj; DK), Brandts Museum of Modern Art (Brandts; DK) and Malmö Kunstmusem (Malmø; SE). Recent exhibitions include: Kunsten - Museum of Modern Art (Aalborg; DK), Salzburg Kunstverein (Salzburg; AT), Rudolph Tegner Museum and Statue Park (Dronningmølle; DK), Berghain (Berlin; DE), The Pompidou Center (Paris; FR); The Tinguely Museum (Basel; CH).
