Biography °

Born in Esbjerg, Denmark (1994), Niklas Emborg Gjersøe is an audiovisual artist, producer, composer, and musician, holding a degree from the Danish National Academy of Music. Spanning multiple disciplines, Niklas has delved into Arabian/Danish folk music, studio production, contemporary dance, performance art, and audiovisual installations.

The Danish artist’s journey has been marked by chance encounters and unexpected revelations. What began as a simple desire to make music has evolved into a multifaceted exploration of immersive audiovisual installations, guided by serendipitous encounters and collaborative synergies.

The power of collaboration is exemplified by Niklas’s ongoing partnership with dancer and choreographer Jacqueline Bulnés, as well as his continued collaboration as one half of the duo Gjersøe & Rizzi. Together, they engage in site-specific installations and artistic projects rooted in workshop-based exploration.

Niklas recently concluded his largest solo exhibition to date, “4WALLS UNIFIED,” showcased at the Vejle Kunstmuseum from autumn 2023 to spring 2024. This captivating video and sound installation directly engages with diverse communities in the city of Vejle, highlighting the omnipresence and constancy of art.

Furthermore, Niklas has exhibited video and sound installations in various museums across Denmark. He also co-created the multidisciplinary performance “The GraVity Between” in collaboration with choreographer Jacqueline Bulnés (USA/IT), which has been showcased internationally in New York, Rome, Naples and Molfetta. Their immersive performances explore the intricate relationship between external and internal worlds. This partnership will soon premiere with a new show called D.O.S.E. Premiering at Trame Contemporanee (IT) in June 2024, their latest collaboration promises a captivating fusion of choreography, internal and external soundscapes, and electronic music, offering a deeply connected experience for audiences.

A conspicuous component of improvisation
[…] “The gravity between” is a performance that is clearly, provocatively, perhaps even blatantly avant-garde. But what is the vanguard?” […] “In conclusion, this show is certainly symptomatic of new directives taken by contemporary theater and, perhaps, it will be considered a milestone in the theater of our century” – Antonio Sanges @CulturSocialArt

[…] “There are two elements that are identified unequivocally during the performance. a common BREATH, so intense in the dancer that it involves the audience, air as a tinsel – adorned – but also with a melodic completion from the music of Emborg Gjersøe. The other is a FORCE that pushes and attracts both vertically and horizontally, out of control, but which gives the movement a tension, which is  aesthetically pleasing to the eye, catalysing from the bodies of the performers, pervading every single action and look.” […]
” I am looking forward to the next inspirational piece of Bulnés & Gjersøe, so as to train ourselves to a futuristic look of dance, where our imaginative contribution is required in the space between concept and content.” – Giada Somenzari @GufettoPress

Niklas Gjersøe is Embracing Aesthetic Awareness in Our Dynamic Everyday Lives – 4 WALLS UNIFIED

“In a world often dominated by the digital and the distant, “4WALLS UNIFIED” serves as a poignant reminder to pause, observe, and appreciate the aesthetic richness embedded in our immediate surroundings. The exhibition encourages us to reevaluate our perceptions, fostering a collective movement towards a more aware and connected way of living—one where the beauty of our dynamic everyday lives is not just acknowledged but celebrated.” – Carmen Line Hust @Articulate

Through their work, they invite us to see the world through new eyes and embark on a journey of exploration and discovery.”  – Carmen Line Hust @Articulate
