Asbjørn Skou is a visual artist based in Copenhagen. He was born in 1984 in Copenhagen and studied at the Academy of Art in Bremen, Germany. He works primarily with drawing, interventions in public space and site- and time-specific installations.
Asbjørn Skou´s work is documental, rooted in observation and intricate research, but he restates this research by assembling it in the fluctuating space between fact and fiction, and utilizing this as means, to generate a critique of contemporary historical and cultural constructions. He uses drawing, photos, found visual material, installation and projection, to create artwork that serves as a form of critical spatial research and communication.
His work is concerned with investigating the peripheral and hidden structures of actual spaces and discourse, and communicating these in attempts to navigate and negotiate their identity.
