“Seminarium,” an exhibition by Jesper Just at Perrotin, Tokyo

Danish artist Jesper Just’s first solo exhibition in Japan features four recently produced film works, as well as still images from the artist’s ongoing Interpassivities series. The title derives from Latin and originally held the meaning of ‘plant nursery’, later also being used to refer to educational institutions where new knowledge and cognition are nurtured.

Seminarium confronts the ongoing human desire—past and present—to cultivate and develop “super” species, whether plants or bodies; to control nature and force it to assume specific shapes and properties.” — Jesper Just
