In preparation of the twelfth edition of the biennial, opening in September 2023, a number of artists will be in residence in the region of West Sweden, to research on site, meet artists and art professionals in the region and start the production of new artworks.
The second artist in residence in the region in connection to the twelfth edition of the biennial is Rasmus Myrup, who is in Gothenburg during November 2022.
About the artist:
Rasmus Myrup (b. 1991, Copenhagen) is a Danish artist, whose work seeks to explore how the experience of being human is malleable – and how susceptible it is; at its worst to manipulation and at its best to change. With roots in our belonging to the natural realm, Myrup investigates the big narratives of humanity’s existence, evolution and history through the lens of small, personal and intimate emotions. Through his sculptures, installations and drawings, he seeks to understand other times, species and worlds – and in that way everything from Neanderthals to trees or folklore can provide new perspectives on our understanding of death, sex and power.
His recent solo exhibitions include Slut [The End] at Jack Barrett (US) and Folx at Nicolai Wallner (DK), and Homo Homo at Tranen Contemporary Art Center (DK).
