Jane Jin Kaisen ジェーン・ジン・カイスン
Professor at the School of Media Arts at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts
Jane Jin Kaisen (born 1980 in Jeju Island, South Korea) is a visual artist living in Copenhagen. Working with video installation, experimental film, photographic installation, performance, and text, Kaisen’s artistic practice is informed by extensive interdisciplinary research and engagement with diverse communities. She is known for her visually striking, multilayered, performative, poetic, and multi-voiced feminist works through which past and present are brought into relation. Engaging topics such as memory, migration, borders, and translation, she activates the field where subjective experience and embodied knowledge intersect with larger political histories. Her works negotiate and mediate the means of representation, resistance and reconciliation, thus forming alternative genealogies and sites of collective emergence.
