JESPER JUST
Onsdag 6. marts 2019 blev Ny Carlsbergfondets Kunstpriser uddelt ved fondets årlige prisfest på Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. Ny Carlsbergfondets Kunstnerlegater blev i år tildelt billedkunstnerne Jesper Just og Julie Nord. De har hver især modtaget Ny Carlsbergfondets Kunstnerlegat på kr. 150.000.

”Jesper Just har gjort det til sin opgave at skabe værker, der blotter hjerte og sjæl for åben skærm. Han har sans for at udlevere vores allerinderste: sårbarheden, håbet, kærligheden. Jesper graver dybt og favner episk bredt. Hans film er mystiske som myten, men forklarer os alligevel alt dét, livet handler om.”

JESPER JUST 
On Wednesday, 6 March 2019, the New Carlsberg Foundation’s Art Awards were handed out at the foundation’s annual award event at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. In 2019, the New Carlsberg Foundation’s Artist Grants were awarded to the pictorial artists Jesper Just and Julie Nord of DKK 150,000.

From board member Stine Høholt’s speech at the award event: "Jesper Just has made it his mission to create works that lay bare the heart and soul for all to see. He has a way of exposing our innermost core: vulnerability, hope, love. Jesper digs deep and has an epically wide reach. His films are mysterious like myth but still explain all the things that life is about."
