The artistic practice of Kristian Byskov spans on a wide range of text, installation, sculpture, film, sound and theatre as well as critical pedagogy. He has written three books and participated in several exhibitions, theatre pieces and other projects in various countries.

In Kristian’s work, the meeting between landscapes and words touch us in often unexpected ways, unfolding new meanings and possibilities. We are ever more connected to our surrounding ecological systems. This evolves within our daily lives and into our future world, formed by catastrophes and new becomings.

With research and dialogue as a starting point, Kristian works with narration as a tool for converging reality and science-fiction. He works with philosophical and political issues around land and body. Here, he opens a questioning of how we can reclaim and reinvent our ideas of nature as well as how to live and form communities.

A current research is on the life, histories and future of industrial agricultural landscapes (see among other: Unforgetting and Græsset).

In addition, Kristian works with facilitation and designing organisational patterns and spaces along with different kinds of groups (see: Pedagogy Of Space).

BIO på dansk:

Kristian Byskovs praksis spænder vidt over tekst, installation, skulptur, film, lyd og teater samt kritisk pædagogik. Han har skrevet 3 bøger og deltaget i flere forskellige udstillinger, teaterstykker og andre projekter i ind- og udland.

Landskaber møder ord i Kristians værker, og de rører ved os på ofte uventede måder hvor de åbner op for nye erkendelser og muligheder. Vi bliver stadig tættere forbundet med vores omgivende økosystemer. Dette udvikler sig både i vores dagligdag og ind i vores fremtidige verden, formet af katastrofer og nye tilblivelser.

Med research og dialog som udgangspunkt arbejder Kristian med fortælling som værktøj og sammenfører virkelighed og science-fiction. Han arbejder med både filosofiske og politiske spørgsmål om land og krop. Her åbner han op for en undersøgelse af hvordan vi kan genvinde og forny vores ideer om natur samt det at leve og forme fællesskaber.

En igangværende research er om det industrielle landbrugs landskaber, liv, historie og fremtid (se bl.a. Unforgetting og Græsset)

Kristian arbejder desuden med facilitering, organisering og design af rum med forskellige grupper (se: Pedagogy Of Space).

Kristian Byskov er født I 1984 I Næstved.

Han er uddannet MFA fra Det Kongelig Danske Kunstakademi i 2013.
