Jakob Ohrt

Born in 1986 in Copenhagen (Denmark)

Jakob Ohrt is an artist and filmmaker born in Copenhagen, Denmark. He studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts in London before attending Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains. His work often operates through a process of setting up new realities within existing contexts, thereby producing new speculations, scenarios and stories.
Themes reflected in his work include temporality, technology and the affective relationship we have with image, sound and story. This often comes into play through imagining alternative futures and pasts alike and through a principle of equality where both the staged and the given share the frame equally.
