Axel Petersén's "Orientalisk Intermezzo” . Saturday, March 19th, 6pm-8pm
Galerie Belenius/Nordenhake, Jacobs Torg 3. Join us for refreshments and a walk-through of the exhibition led by the artist, starting at 6.30pm
Petersén's photographs were taken this winter in Cairo while on a residency at the Townhouse Gallery, which was closed by the authorities only a week after he left. The fact that the artist himself, during one of his many visits to the country, was interrogated for 24 hours concerning both the motifs and motives of his pictures seems perfectly understandable, considering the paranoia and intrigue that are ever-present in the images.
