Stine Marie Jacobsen

Jul 2013 to Dec 2013
1977 Denemarken

Stine Marie Jacobsen works with a broad range of mediand methods including video, performance , collaboration, photography, installation and text. Key themes in her work are cinema and film, gender archetypes, anonymity, death and violence, as well as their portrayal and presentation in film.

In “Direct Approach” Stine Marie Jacobsen interacts with a wide spectrum of people from various fields of life and work. First, she had the participants recount personla memories of a specific film scene which they had found especially violent or traumatising. Jacobsen then restaged the film scenes in question on the basis of these subjective descriptions. Here, she casts people she had questioned in place of the actors: victim, witness, violent perpetrator – each participant could choose which of the characters he or she wished to incorporate. 

She has exhibited and performed extensively internationally. Recently she has participated in group-shows like Either-Or, 2013, at Haus am Waldsee, Berlin, Germany and Nikolaj Kunsthal, Copenhagen, Denmark, and shown work in exhibitions and projects such as Momentum Biennale, 2013, Moss, Norway, Turku Biennale, 2013, Finland, Working Voices, 2013, at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo MAC, 2013, Bogota, Colombia,  The 10th OPEN International Performance Festival, 2009, Beijing, China.
