    Jacob Kudsk Steensen’s new artwork for Daata Editions RE-WILDLING deals with themes of extinction, preservation, and the emergence of new ecological realities and is inspired by the reintroduction of a previously extinct crow to the Big Island of Hawai

    Part of a year-long project for which Kudsk Steensen interviewed ornithologists about their last memories of now-extinct species, and collaborated with natural history archives as well as science writers offering fresh perspectives on ecological issues, the project’s body of work is entirely composed of 3D scanned organic material and real audio recordings of extinct birds, from which Steensen has created new species and worlds.

    The launch of RE-WILDLING coincides with RE-ANIMATED, Jakob Kudsk Steensen first institutional solo show in Denmark, taking place at Tranen in Denmark, curated by Toke Lykkeberg. The project is realized in collaboration with composer Michael Risman, Music Director of the Philip Glass Ensemble, the ornithology archive at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC, and with supported from The Danish Arts Foundation, Harvestworks, Mana Contemporary, and Bikuben Foundation.
