Jesper Just was born in 1974 in Copenhagen, and he lives and works in New York. A visual artist who employs cinematic conventions, Just works primarily in film and occasionally in performance.
While Just’s work presents itself as cinema, it is often without plot, story or narrative. Rather, his works often portray ambiguous relationships and circumstances, leaving viewers to determine their interpretations. Dealing with themes of identity, gender, masculinity, and femininity, Just places particular emphasis on the places in which he films. For Intercourses, which he presented at the Venice Biennale in 2013, he filmed within the replica of the city of Paris in Hangzhou, China, complicating ideas of location, truthfulness, and representation.
