Download Biography

Andreas Emenius' eclectic, cross-disciplinary exhibitions and films offers a glimpse into his uncanny world in which fine art and contemporary culture merge effortlessly. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins, Emenius has established himself as an artist working in a place between painting, installation and video. His shows have attracted international attention both within the art world and beyond. Drawing from a deep understanding of painting’s histories—filtered through personal experience, myth and sport—his works oscillate between the banalities of everyday life and the otherworldly.

Emenius regularly exhibits his unique visual universe at galleries and art institutions, including shows at Viborg Kunsthal; Moderna Museet, Malmö; Schunck Museum, Holland; The Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles; Gwangju Biennale, South Korea; Liljevalchs, Stockholm; and HEART Museum, Denmark. He has collaborated with various artists, including Danish musician Trentemøller, for whom he directed several acclaimed music videos and stage designs, Grammis award winner Jenny Wilson, and others. Together with fashion designer Henrik Vibskov, he has also created the internationally acclaimed art projects ‘The Fringe Projects’ and ‘The Circular Series’ (VibskovEmenius). Emenius is the curator and co-founder of the Nordic Contemporary in Paris and is an active jury member in art and film awards.
