Jacob Kudsk Steensen’s work RE-WILDING deals with themes of extinction, preservation, and the emergence of new ecological realities. Inspired by the reintroduction of a previously extinct crow to the Big Island of Hawaii, t is part of a year-long project for which Kudsk Steensen interviews ornithologists about their last memories of now-extinct species, and collaborates with natural history archives as well as science writers offering fresh perspectives on ecological issues. The project’s body of work is entirely composed of 3D scanned organic material and real audio recordings of extinct birds, from which Steensen has created new species and worlds. RE-WILDING has been Commissioned by Daata Editions.

BIO

Jakob Kudsk Steensen is a Danish artist and art director based in New York City. He is concerned with how imagination, technology and ecology intertwine. Inspired by ecology-oriented science fiction and conversations with biologists and ethnographers, his projects are ultimately virtual simulations inhabited by mythical beings existing in radical ecological scenarios. Kudsk Steensen has recently exhibited at the Venice Biennale, the PinchukArtCentre, Tranen, SXSW, the 5th Trondheim Biennale for Art and Technology, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Serpentine Galleries Marathon, Jepson Center for the Arts, Time Square Midnight Moment, MAXXI Rome, and FRIEZE London. The artist is the first recipient of the Serpentine Galleries’ Augmented Architecture Commission.

The work is part of guest curator Nathanja van Dijk’s screening program Unquiet.
