Henrik Plenge Jakobsen

Over the past ten years, the Danish artist Henrik Plenge Jakobsen has gained a reputation for making works which provoke a double take. His laughing gas chambers, fake traffic accident and fire, and brightly coloured logos, ANGST and NASDAQ FOREVER, all played on the seductive powers of surface appearances, as well as their ability to belie underlying meanings and truths. Most recently the artist has focused on devising striking installations which knit together diverse elements to create absurdist scenarios laden with multiple meanings.


He has had solo exhibitions at the National Museum for Art in Copenhagen, South London Gallery, and Portikus in Frankfurt, among others. His works have been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon, FRAC Pays de la Loire in Carquefou, FRAC Ile de France in Paris, National Gallery of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, and Moscow Museum of Modern Art.
