Jesper Just

 

Danish artist and filmmaker Jesper Just, in collaboration with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, charts the fractured, ever-changing topography of modern experience in this shape-shifting ballet. Inspired by Jorge Luis Borges’ fantasy of an immense map constructed on a one-to-one scale, Interpassivities immerses participants in a life-size no-man’s land. A self-triggering music machine communicates contrapuntally with towering video projections, while groups of laborers in pedestrian clothing and dancers pinball around the space, intermingling with audience members. Each action has a reaction—but what is controlling what? Like Borges, Just rethinks the meaning of maps, who makes them, and the artificial borders we create.
