Lasse Lau (born 1974, Denmark) is an award-winning visual artist and filmmaker who looks at the spatial dimension of power to better understand society’s social struggles. His work addresses challenges and pitfalls in the relational and representational capitalist monolithic readings of space. His most recent film, Lykkelænder – The Raven and The Seagull – looks into the complex identity struggles of Greenland’s quest for cultural and constitutional independence. The relationship between Greenland and Denmark is full of fantasy and myths and these myths are what Danish artist Lau reflects and reacts upon. His films have won the Nordic:Dox Award at CPH:DOX*, 1st prize at Fokus Videokunst Festival, and an honorary mention at Festival Der Nationen and the Sunset Film Festival. His films have been shown at Beirut Art Center, the British Museum, BOZAR, Cimatheque, CPH:DOX, Darb 1718, Edith-Russ-Haus fur Medienkunst, Festival d'arts vidéo Clermont Farrand, Fotografisk Center, Green Lantern, Kunsthallen Nikolaj, Lumiar Cité, Malmö konsthall, Medrar for Contemporary Art, MOMA PS1, Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea Lisboa, Museum of Resistance Torino, OCAT, Smart Project Space, Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art, Westfälische Kunstverein and WRO Media Art Biennale. Lasse Lau studied at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, Berlin University of Art and the Funen Academy of Fine Art in Denmark.
