Jo Hedegaard (b. 1994) started his artistic career in a derelict container in the harbour of Copenhagen in 2012, before going to London to study art. He has a bachelor in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in NYC and Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Now based in Copenhagen, Jo has embraced a curious and wide practice, now working with drawing, sculpture, poetry, semiotics, oration, public performance and his own brand of film. His practice is action-based and DIY, working in the streets rather than white cube galleries. He has made a variety of public performances in multiple cities, including New York, Amsterdam, Reykjavik and Algier. Hedegaard has published two poetry books, and one of calligraphies. He features in a variety of publications and in public discourse in Denmark.
