Jón Sonni Jensen’s Artist statement:
My practice scrutinizes the bodily with premise in biology and the psychology between repulsion and appeal. With respect to these subject matters I particularly base my research on theories and imagery methods within medical technology and an experimentation in the psychosomatic experience of materials. Through my depictions of the corporeal as fragment, construction and mass-product as well as my undeviating utilization of a juxtaposition of corporeal and ‘clinical’ materials, I aim to simultaneously generate familiar and alienated notions of the bodily and its identity.
The exhibition is a collaboration with TjaldurGo to Facebook event page
