Søren Dahlgaard graduated from Slade School of Fine Arts, London. In his work, method is challenged through narrative. His work is conceptual and is strongly linked to post-war Japanese performance art – especially the ground breaking Gutai group, the New York avant-garde movement of the 1960’s as well as land art from the 1970’s. He incorporates a type of understated slapstick in his work. This is mostly apparent in his performances and staged photograph series. Visually he draws from the aesthetics of minimalism.
