About

Jonas Lund is a Swedish artist currently based in Amsterdam who uses a variety of media, combining software-based works with performance, installation, video and sculpture. His most recent exhibition at Showroom MAMA, Rotterdam explores the potential for algorithmic optimisation within contemporary artworks. In this exhibition paintings, sculptures and photographs were created under instruction based on an algorithm drawing from a database consisting of data collected from Artfacts, Mutualart, Artsy and e-flux. Recent works such as The Top 100 Highest Ranked Curators In The World, 2013 examines the underlying stratified network of artists and curators within art institutions and exhibition making. Lund received an MA at Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam. His work has been exhibited at De Hallen, Haarlem; Witte De With, Rotterdam; New Museum, New York; Eyebeam, New York; W139, Amsterdam; Rhizome, and Temporary Stedelijk. His work has been written about on Rhizome, Huffington Post, Furtherfield and Wired.
