ROFF is the patron of the exhibition “Servitudes - Circuits (Interpassivities)” at MAAT

ROFF, a Gfi group company and leading company in the implementation of SAP solutions in Portugal, continues to support the initiatives of MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology) - and in 2019 it is the exclusive patron of the new exhibition “Servitudes - Circuits (Interpassivities)”, created by the Danish artist Jesper Just.

Francisco Febrero, CEO of ROFF, states that “By paying close attention to creative innovation, cultural patronage and support for artists is a crucial concern for ROFF’s management. Since MAAT is one the most relevant cultural projects in Lisbon, we decided to maintain and even strengthen our support, as we continue to view this partnership with the EDP Foundation and MAAT as the ideal project for our social responsibility program in the area of culture.

Using expository architecture as a medium that speaks through video projections, Danish artist Jesper Just transforms the Oval Gallery into a pair of emotional spaces, inhabited by fleeting characters which reflect the human condition in the present day, in a site-specific intervention. Through sound, designed structures and the deconstruction of moving images, the artist changes the perspective and physicality of the exhibition spaces, obstructing the Museum’s normal visitor flow. This performance approach forces the visitor to adjust to unexpected conditions, testing their ideas of free-will, self-conscience and the limits of the body.

The exhibition opened on May 15th 2019 and will remain in MAAT until 2nd September 2019.

Jesper Just in a Danish artist who lives and works in New York. From 1997 to 2003, he studied in the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.

Jesper Just uses a mix of multiple video channels, sound installations, live performance and architectural interventions as ways to create works which address complex present-day issues. His works can be seen in over twenty five international museums, such as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Tate Modern in London and the MoMA Museum of Modern Art in New York.
