— Jessie Kleemann

Jessie Kleemann (born in Upernavik, Greenland in 1959) is a poet, dancer and video and performance artist. She lives and works in Copenhagen.

In her poems, the first of which appeared in her book Taallat in 1997, traditional Eskimo motifs meet the globalised present. Mystical natural images collide with real social problems, sea mothers with Brigitte Bardot, dog sleds with 4-wheel drive off-road vehicles. In this way, Kleemann’s poetry, written in Greenlandic and Danish, brings the image world of the Eskimos up to date for the 21st Century. It searches for heritage and identity in the broken linguistic material of the post-modern, creating texts in which the beautiful and the ugly do not exclude each other. After training as a lithographic artist, Kleemann studied at the Tuukkaq Theater in Fjaltring, Jütland, in 1978-79, and from 1984 to 1991 she was the Director of the art school in Nuuk. In addition to her many other social and other commitments, she has established a poetry festival in Greenland and written film scripts and has her own TV show. She has developed a ‘body art’ based on traditional masks and rituals for her provocative performances, using her own body as a living canvas, projecting at this level the art of a people who have to struggle like no other with the vagaries of life in today’s mediated landscape.

— Rasmus Dahl Vest

Rasmus Dahl Vest (born 1988) is working on a PhD-thesis titled Poetry IRL – contemporary poetry’s role and place in the digital age. In this thesis he proposes that contemporary poetry has become part of the trans-media distribution of language, which constitutes the digital age’s social sphere. To understand the consequences of this delocalization, the thesis strives to answer the following questions: What happens to poetry, when it is dragged into “real” life (IRL), what happens to poetry, when life is partly lived through media interfaces and what happens to the relationship between poetry and politics, when poetry is delocalized? Rasmus Dahl Vest’s research interests are: postproduction, remediation, the relationship between the private|personal and the public|common and the relationship between poetry, place and politics.

Jessie Kleemann (born in Upernavik, Greenland in 1959) is a poet, dancer and video and performance artist. She lives and works in Copenhagen.

In her poems, the first of which appeared in her book Taallat in 1997, traditional Eskimo motifs meet the globalised present. Mystical natural images collide with real social problems, sea mothers with Brigitte Bardot, dog sleds with 4-wheel drive off-road vehicles. In this way, Kleemann’s poetry, written in Greenlandic and Danish, brings the image world of the Eskimos up to date for the 21st Century. It searches for heritage and identity in the broken linguistic material of the post-modern, creating texts in which the beautiful and the ugly do not exclude each other. After training as a lithographic artist, Kleemann studied at the Tuukkaq Theater in Fjaltring, Jütland, in 1978-79, and from 1984 to 1991 she was the Director of the art school in Nuuk. In addition to her many other social and other commitments, she has established a poetry festival in Greenland and written film scripts and has her own TV show. She has developed a ‘body art’ based on traditional masks and rituals for her provocative performances, using her own body as a living canvas, projecting at this level the art of a people who have to struggle like no other with the vagaries of life in today’s mediated landscape.

Rasmus Dahl Vest (born 1988) is working on a PhD-thesis titled Poetry IRL – contemporary poetry’s role and place in the digital age. In this thesis he proposes that contemporary poetry has become part of the trans-media distribution of language, which constitutes the digital age’s social sphere. To understand the consequences of this delocalization, the thesis strives to answer the following questions: What happens to poetry, when it is dragged into “real” life (IRL), what happens to poetry, when life is partly lived through media interfaces and what happens to the relationship between poetry and politics, when poetry is delocalized? Rasmus Dahl Vest’s research interests are: postproduction, remediation, the relationship between the private|personal and the public|common and the relationship between poetry, place and politics.
