Charlotte Fogh Contemporary is happy to introduce the video artist Jacob Taekker’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, “Cave and Reality”.
The exhibition presents his latest video installations that all focus on the human need of and drive towards communication and artistic expression. Generally, the videos revolve around man’s eternal struggle to reach the top and how to balance in the world we have constructed. The main work of the exhibition, “Cave and Reality”, therefore poses the question of what is reality and what is construction based on Platon’s famous Allegory of the Cave.
With his influence from feature films, music videos and computer games, Jacob Taekker has contributed in setting new standards for video art and has exhibited at various galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. The videos of Jacob Taekker are represented in both private collections and in the collection of Skive Museum of Art.
