Since the mid-1990s, this 44-year-old Danish artist, who lives and works in Berlin, has created site-specific installations that focus on the societal suppression of homosexuality, and the deleterious interplay of the personal and the political that it entails. His work combines sculptural objects with images and archival material gleaned from public-domain sources. Though long admired in Europe, Olesen is a relatively fresh face over here. For this show, he's created a new site-specific piece: A series of "portraits" created by disassembling the subjects' personal computers.
