Gregers Heering (M.F.A.) is a Danish visual artist based in Los Angeles who primarily works with photography. He holds an M. F. A. from the American Film Institute (AFI), Los Angeles.
Heering first exhibited his work in 2012 (Greenland series, Soho House, Los Angeles, along with artists Vanessa Praeger and Patrick Hoelck among others). Later the same year, his Greenland series got shown at The Reventlow Museum in his native Denmark. Since, he has been exhibited numerous times in both solo and group shows and his work has been featured in a wide range of international publications, including CNN, Der Spiegel, The New York Observer, PDN as well as Danish major newspapers, including Politiken and Berlingske.
Heering’s photographic practice typically arises from an intuitive impulse which opens up a new space where the real and the imagined collide. What draws Heering close to a scene or subject is often less about a visual immediacy as much as the power of what remains hidden.
The practice therefore feeds off the freedom that follows a deep sense of concentration where time itself is slowed down until an unknown world takes over; it’ss at that point the work starts to breathe.
Heering’s projects are never planned or ‘thought up’ just as he never intends to make a statement. Instead, what ties his work together is life itself along with the opportunities that connect the projects; it’s about the love of dreams, family and an existential connectivity often found in closed-up and distant places, whether at land or far out at sea.
