“Drafts of Ecology” 2020
Variable dimensions
  1. Passage grave of graphite on paper
  2. The Complete book of self-sufficiency by John Seymour with landscape modeling trees
  3. Dollhouse Empire Furniture with flint flakes
The three assemblages are small tableaus relating to the notion of ecology and architecture. The miniature-like situations also act as diagrams for understanding the historical and spiritual aspects of ecology within the framework of the coming film by the artist.


“Nest of The Beast” 2020
30x45x60
Styrofoam Thermobox, Monster Energy hoodie, dried branches, skin of a badger, bubble wrap, USB grow lights, USB hub, power strip with modelling grass.
A tomb-like case inhabited by an anthropomorphic figure resembling the carcass of the protagonist, Fen-Dweller - the main character of the narrative in the coming filmwork of the artist.


“Chalk Cliff Staircase (host body)” 2020
170x45x30
Casted gypsum
Plaster cast of a fragment from a broken wooden staircase leading down to the chalk cliff on the island of Møn. An island in which the film by the artist revolves around and as a geography for the narrative.

The Legend of the Larynx Metamorphosis



By Theodor Præst Nymark Jensen & Sofus Keiding Agger.

With support by Mikkel Drabik Jacobsen, Bruno Zhang & Evan Lu.

The exhibition at GARAGE 9 in Bologna examines the concept of the flood-myth as an instrument of power and a global mythological legend. The works in the exhibition visualize an imaginary conspiratorial narrative, evolved upon a self-written text, that translates into speculation about the results of a potential flood of, among others, Bologna and Homosapiensʼ ability to adapt to this suggested situation.

Told with mythical language, the text describes a story about two craftsmen who wander from the mountains, and down to the center of Bologna. There, they publically announce a solution of survival to the potential flooding of the city. Through rich telling they propose a ritual of transformation which replaces the human lungs with a fish gill apparatus. A young boy, willing to participate, experiences the greatest heroic sensation of his short life and attempts to make his old fisherman father proud. To everyoneʼs surprise, something unexpected happens and the duality of the narrative blossoms in uncanny tragedy. Thereby the craftsmen demonstrate a biological change to evolve as a species, acting in a dialectical drama of battling the inner and outer superior nature.

13th September – 15th September 2019 Garage 9, Via Di Saliceto 9H, Bologna
