Søren Jensen

Søren Jensen explores the category of sculpture in postmodern society. In many works he has been concerned with the connections between the open and the closed and the sculpture in the expanded field – in between sculpture, architecture, and city space. His latest works have revolved around the relationship between show and art and explored the wish to overcome the boundaries between these categories. The works thereby gain both presence and content. Søren Jensen’s works make use of a variation in material and expressions, but revolve around the recognizability of the objects in the works. The objects are taken from everyday life, but have their esthetics and spatial qualities highlighted instead of their function. In this perspective the assignment of art becomes to try to understand life and our society.

 

Søren Jensen (b. 1957) is a Danish sculptor educated at the Danish Royal Academy of Art in 1986. He has exhibited widely since the eighties, notable is Kniven på hovedet (With the Knife at the head), 1982 and Gud og Grammatik (God and Grammar), 1984. From 1999-2006 Søren Jensen was Rector at Funen Art Academy. In 2004 Jensen received the Eckersberg Medal. In 2011 he acceded as the chairman of the Danish Arts Agency’s committee of Art in Public Space.
