ARTOR JESUS INKERÖ
Artor Jesus Inkerö (born 1989 in Finland) works with performance, video, text, audio, photography, installation, painting, and sculpture. Inkerö points at the Western notions of masculinity that shape the overall culture as well as their persona in an attempt to interpret and find refinement in conflicting ideals for the body. Inkerö examines how language, gestures, and, for example, a tone of voice can deny or allow access to specific groups. In asking you to look closer at structures of power, Inkerö creates space for a fantasy of norm defiance. Their works have been presented in the New Museum in New York, Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Beursschouwburg Theatre in Brussels, Somerset House in London, and the Centre for Contemporary Photography in Melbourne. Inkerö graduated with MFA in Time and Space at the University of the Arts in Helsinki and has since then been a resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten artist residency in Amsterdam as well as an invited resident at the Somerset House in London.
