Graduation students from the Jutland Art Academy 2022: Anna Elisabeth Dupont Hansen, Fritjof Krabbe Nørretranders, Helle Kongstad Holm Petersen, Mathias Riis Andersen, Mikkel Høgh Kaldal and Olivia Willman.

Diamonds and dead jackdaws, inflatable animals with motifs from the intimate sphere, a solar-powered tele-theatre, gloves without hands, a building site in break down, the class battle of laces, and prose that become living objects are just some of the elements that you will be able to experience at this year’s afgang 22 from the Jutland Art Academy. The exhibition afgang 22 is curated by Mette Kjærgaard Præst.
