Studio Program (Resident, 2020)
Rasmus Myrup (1991) is a Danish visual artist based in Copenhagen. He graduated from Funen Art Academy (DK) in 2018. His most recent solo exhibitions include shows at Jack Barrett (NY, US), Tranen (DK) and Galerie Balice Hertling (FR).
Rasmus Myrup’s works represent a synthesis of perspectives large and small. Basing his work on the history of evolution and our connection to the natural world, Myrup investigates the big arc of humanity’s natural roots in the context of personal human emotions and relations. He works primarily with sculptural installations and drawing, using empathy as a means to transcend time, species and worlds in order to explore human existence. In Myrup’s art everything from dinosaurs to Neanderthals or trees can generate new insights into death, sex and power.
