Jesper Just’s “Seminarium” Foregrounds our Desire to Control and Tame Nature

“Touching on the historical need of humankind to control and tame nature,” Jesper Just’s film-based installation “Seminarium” opens at Gammel Holtegaard in Holte, Denmark. Drawing on the history of the site’s 18th-century gardens, which were landscaped as a “Danish mini-Versailles,” his precision engineered environment foregrounds flora in direct conversation with oblique facetted displays, showing closely cropped footage of human anatomy.
