Jan Hakon Erichsen

"I work with performance for video, which I share daily across my social media. In my videos I explore the things we surround ourselves with, often through destroying everyday objects in excessive ways or using them in an unorthodox manner. All my performances are usually sculpturally based, with crude destruction machines as a reoccurring theme. I make everything from very simple devices to complex contraptions that are all designed to destroy everyday objects of low monetary value. The last four years I have been working with the internet as my main arena to showcase my work and in that time I have become one of the performance artists who reaches the most people this way, with a large following and millions of video views. My art has been shown in galleries and festivals around the world since I finished my education at The Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Among them Lights On at the Astrup Fearnley Museum, Tomorrow People at Elevator Gallery in London and Flat Out at AC Gallery in New York. My work has gotten attention from media across the globe, among them Art in America, Kunstforum International and New York Magazine."
