"Struggle(s)" april - june 2012

Born in 1966 in Denmark. Lives and works in Copenhagen.

Peter Land’s videos, drawings and installations usually show him in obsessively repetitive situations that are often grotesque, caricatured or driven to extremes. Recording acts and, above all, their repetition, is a constant concern in his work. The artist explores the basic conditions of existence and attempts to find sense in acts that appear senseless. Land proposes himself as an object of study, with his body, his doubts and his fears, to reveal the fragmentation, the dignity and the absurdity of contemporary people, as seen in the everyday images that are transmitted by our cultural codes and by the media. Thus, he becomes an analyst of our times, lucid and melancholic in equal parts.
