Jesper Just allows enigmas to disrupt his narratives of image, sound, and music, in turn creating tension, doubt, and emotion. This monograph is published concurrently with the artist’s solo exhibition, ‘Servitudes’, conceived for the Palais de Tokyo, comprising an audio-visual installation and a spatial intervention. The One World Trade Center is both the scene of the films and a character in itself. It functions as a phantom limb, while also representing resilience. Through two divergent but mirrored characters, the films explore themes of ableism and agency, as well as the boundaries of body and selfhood. With installation views, film stills, and a conversation with the artist.
