The artist duo J&K (Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard) have been working in collaboration since 1999 and are based in Berlin, Copenhagen and the island of Møn, Denmark.
Recent larger completed projects include the public art work "Forende Fasaner", a 20m high mural on Hillerødgade 38, Frederiksberg/Copenhagen, commissioned by Somewhere and Frederiksberg Council, as well as the art-in-architecture work "Glory to the Unknown" permanently installed at the Goethe Institute and DAAD in Cairo/Egypt, commissioned by the German Federal Building Office (BBR). During 2018/2019 J&K were long term resident artists at Inkonst and the Inter Arts Centre, Malmø (SE) where they developed the participatory stage work "We". Currently they are in the process of realising a large indoor commission "Unendliches Spektrum" for the Schwulenberatung Berlin's new building project LovX and a permanent installation "Neuganea" for the cafeteria of Johanna-Eck-Schule in Berlin.
J&K have shown major solo presentations at SPACE projects in London, The National Gallery of Denmark, KUNSTEN – Aalborg Museum of Art, The Pergamon Museum Berlin, The Aarhus Art Building, Overgaden – Institute for Contemporary Art Copenhagen and others. They have participated in large international group shows such as the 1rst Karachi Biennial, Copenhagen Art Festival, Ars Baltica Triennial of Photographic Art and The Liverpool Biennial, and have shown widely at internationally institutions such as Mathaf Doha, Institut de Monde Arab Paris, IVAM Valenica, Museum for Egyptian Art Munich, NGBK+Kunstraum Kreuzberg Berlin, KUMU Tallinn, Pori Art Museum, Casino Luxembourg, Galerie im Körnerpark Berlin, Teatr Studio Warsaw, and many more.
