Bringing together elements from our natural and social histories, Rasmus Myrup’s practice puts forward parallels narratives of what once was and what continues to be. Dynamics of love, sex, family, relationships and power are brought into focus, extending through the worlds of flora, fauna and people alike.

With matter like the stone age, Nordic folklore and modern culture, Myrup’s installations, sculptures and works on paper reintroduce us to a world which is subversively ours but can be overtly ours if we so choose.

This drive to bring other narratives to the forefront is echoed in Myrup’s technical prowess, which utilises both archaic practices and futuristic technique to create something which feels uniquely in the here and now.

Rasmus Myrup (b. 1991, Denmark) currently lives and works in Copenhagen. Myrup has had recent solo exhibitions at Perm Museum of Contemporary Art (Perm, Russia) and Tranen (Hellerup, Denmark), and is also represented by Jack Barrett Gallery (New York). The gallery looks forward to our first solo exhibition with Myrup in August 2021.
