Jane Jin Kaisen

Born 1980, lives and works in Los Angeles and Copenhagen.

 Jane Jin Kaisen is a visual artist working with film, video, performance, text, and photography. She is educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in New York.

Jane Jin’s work deals with questions concerning memory, subjectivity, and political agency. Her work explores how history and memory is negotiated through the relationship between knowledge, desire, and power and between subjectivity, representation, and privilege. From a postcolonial and feminist perspective, her work is deeply invested in how language, ritual, gestures, and symbols may work as tools and metaphors in understanding amnesia, trauma, and agency.

Jane Jin has performed at festivals in Denmark, The Faeroe Islands, South Korea, Indonesia (National Gallery 2005-6), China (7th Open Art Festival og 4th DaDao Live Art Festival, 798 Factory, Beijing), and Hong Kong Fringe Festival. She is initiator of the ongoing performance project “24 hours” which has taken place in a number of countries.
