Jacob Tækker (b. 1977, Sønderborg) studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2000-2006) and Gerrit Reitveld Academy, Amsterdam (2002-2003). He has exhibited in museums and galleries both in Denmark and abroad.
Tækker works in the field of video and digital art, which deals with emotional states, the routine nature of existence, and human beings’ perceptions and incentives for dealing with it. Tækker pays special attention to the simple, humorous picture in motion, creating works, which contain elements of both comedy and tragedy, so that one is never sure whether to cry or laugh.
In his works, Tækker is at once leading man, director, cameraman and screenwriter.
