Stefan Peterson (Sweden)
Dancing with myself, 2016

He wants to convince his wife that he’s not just a boring office guy, so he goes dancing naked in the woods taking pictures of himself.

Such a lovely non sequitur and a very productive way to enact something with very economic means, also exploring body movement, odd locations, sound and its absence, still and moving image – a lot of components that I am also trying to combine.

Land and Sea Horizons, 2007

Yet another modality of non-verbal engagement with concepts. I guess, it operates on the level of pattern recognition that brings together unexpected things triggering some consideration of what meanings might be extracted of that particular likeness and difference. And again, meanings that do not have to (although they may) be verbalised.

I am playing quite a lot with photography, but only very recently realised that I did not seriously consider it as a part of my practice for real – not only as documentation or auxiliary process, but as artistic practice in its own right. That also has clear conceptual underpinnings. Dibbets’ work kind of ‘legitimises’ that approach for me, haha.

…a performance where a pianist ends up tied up to his instrument.

Mark identifies as radical underground photo-artist and I am quite interested in exploring that space as well.

Once again someone does something cool out of thin air… Yay!

Inspiring as to how one can think photography… in particular, rather different way to ‘stage’ it.
