About my artwork
Sam Jedig’s(b. 1959, Denmark) works raise a question about how we interpret ourselves and reality as it is presented to us through the steady flow of images of mass culture. The fragments of images in the works have been removed from their original context in what concerns both time and place. The safe and well-known world is turned upside-down by these new and unexpected juxtapositions. Sam Jedig’s point is that this “real world” only exists as long as we, together, maintain and confirm its existence.

We live in a world where the control of the perfect body is a crucial criterion of success and where we, whether we want to or not, all pursue this exteriority. In some of the works the body elements is dismantled and made incoherent. The transformed body thus becomes an enticing as well as frightening new toy.

Since the beginning of the 1980’s, Sam Jedig has worked with art, but, parallel to his work as an artist, he has also worked as a curator through Stalke Gallery and Stalke Out of Space.
