Nikolaj Larsen (1971) lives and works in Paris. He undertook a master’s degree in Fine Art and Media at Slade School of Fine Art in London (2001) and a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Sculpture at Chelsea College of Art in London (1999). Nikolaj Larsen uses a variety of technological media (photo, video, installations) to create work with a deeply humanistic engagement at its core. Though his work addresses political and social issues, his approach remains sensitive, careful and engaging. He attended several artistic residencies – Qwatz, Calabria (Italy, 2014); PiST///, Istanbul (Turkey, 2012); Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI), Santa Fe (USA, 2009); Al Mamal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem (2006) – and his work is represented in public and private collections, such as Sharjah Art Foundation, United Arab Emirates; Museum of London, UK; Kunsten Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg, Denmark.
