Artists   /   Søren Martinsen


Born 1966. Lives and works in Denmark.

Søren Martinsen is often occupied with alternative society forms and lifestyles with a special focus on the different types of spaces and places attached to them. In videobased works, photographs, installations etc. he examines how dreams and utopian visions are wrapped into real spaces, as for instance festivals or small local communities with their own special structure.

At times, the works have a documentaric appearance, but through Martinsen's interventions the works point towards the passages between outer "real" and inner "fictive" spaces.
