Jakob Kvist is one of Denmark's younger light artists, who with a site-specific approach works primarily with the lights analogue opportunities through the use of light filters, light fixtures and lamps. The light is developed so that the contexts historicity and distinctive architectural character is accentuated, explored or challenged. Jakob Kvist has also worked with When Saints Go Machine, Mø, Quadron, WhoMadeWho and Reptile Youth.
He has previously made light installations at the Copenhagen festivals Frost and Trailerpark. Including Strøm Festival, where he in ensemble with artists like Mike Sheridan won the Ibyen award ’The Experience of the year' for the concert at Tietgenkollegiet in 2013. Jakob Kvist has recently exhibited solo at Vess Gallery last December, and in Reykjavik, Iceland in February with the light installation "Any Color You like".
For this year's Trailerpark Jakob Kvist will be making the lighting design for the Main Stage, together with visuals pioneers from Obscura.
