Filip Vest (DK, b. 1995) works with performance, installation, video and text. His work
revolves around how and where knowledge is produced. Through participatory performances
he uses the rehearsal as a site to explore the negotiation between the text, the space where it is
performed and the body that performs it. His sculptural work often involve networks of ready-
made objects and architectural interventions by which he investigates the interrelational
sculptural processes between humans and the objects we make use of and inhabit.
