Rasmus Myrup

Before the North Sea, there was Doggerland. Rasmus Myrup's artwork for Blåvandshuk Beach  refers to the time when the North Sea was a huge meadow that made Northern Europe and England landlocked. Inspired by the history of the place, local tales and the secrets of the sand, the artist creates a monumental sculpture of eel grass, which is resurrected from another time. 


Rasmus Myrup takes his point of departure from our cohesion with the natural world when he examines the great narrative of human existence, evolution and history with personal feelings and experiences. In his sculptural installations and drawings, Rasmus Myrup seeks to understand his humanity through related times, species and worlds – in this way, everything from dinosaurs to Neanderthals or trees can provide new insight into our relationship with death, sex and power. 

Rasmus Myrup (1991) graduated from the Funen Art Academy (2018). He lives and works in Copenhagen. 

Rasmus Myrup has participated in group exhibitions at e.g. Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Den Frie and most recently had solo exhibitions at Jack Barrett in New York, Galleri Nicolai Wallner in Copenhagen and Tranen Rum for Samtidskunst in Gentofte. Rasmus Myrup is also the founder of the exhibition platform Weekends and co-curator at the Cruising Pavilion.
