Bjørn Melhus

Bjørn Melhus, born 1966, is a German­Norwegian media artist. In his work he has developed a singular position, expanding the possibilities for a critical reception of cinema  and  television.  His  practice  of  fragmentation,  destruction,  and reconstitution  of  well­known  figures,  topics,  and  strategies  of  the  mass  media opens up not only a network of new interpretations and critical commentaries, but also defines the relationship of mass media and viewer anew. Originally rooted  in  an  experimental  film  context, Bjørn  Melhus’s  work  has  been shown  and  awarded  at  numerous  international  film  festivals.  He  has  held screenings  at Tate  Modern  and  the  LUX  in  London,  the  Museum  of  Modern Art (MediaScope) in New York, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, amongst others. His  work  has  been  exhibited  in  shows  like  The  American  Effect  at  the  Whitney Museum New York, the 8th International Istanbul Biennial, solo and group shows at  FACT  Liverpool,  Serpentine  Gallery  London,  Sprengel  Museum  Hanover, Museum Ludwig Cologne, ZKM Karlsruhe, Denver Art Museum among others.
