Is it possible that strong, silent men secretly yearn to sing and dance about their feelings? Expect that to be very much the case in Jesper Just’s latest exhibition, Romantic Delusions, a series of four short noirish films in which the Danish artist imagines a world where the most macho of men are actually hopeless romantics who can’t stop themselves from breaking into song at the most unlikely moments. A highlight of the show is his 2004 work Bliss and Heaven, in which a burly truck driver pulls over to put on a platinum-blond wig and sing Olivia Newton-John. Oh, what a happier world it would be.
