Servitudes – Jesper Just

Paris, 2015

We proudly support installation artist Jesper Just with his solo exhibition Servitudes, at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The installation includes 230 metres of Zulu curtain textile, which is used as both screens and room dividing curtains.

The installation combines multiple videos, music and a spatial intervention. In his film work, Jesper Just links images of an exceptional quality to sound and music. The enigma disrupts the narrative, creating a tension that lets the poetry of the space emerge.

The music serves as a moving force behind the installation, guiding the film's characters and the spectators as they progress through the exhibition. The film’s setting, the equally iconic and controversial One World Trade Center, becomes, as in much of Just’s work, a character itself, indicative of absence and loss, but likewise a testament to resilience.
