Pontus Pettersson is an artist, choreographer and dancer residing in Stockholm. His work runs through dance and poetry, found objects and spatial statements. Originally a dancer, Pontus still sees choreography as a starting point for a more object-oriented practice. Significant for his work is the interplay between body language, written text and the symbolic meaning of objects. Pontus is also, together with Karina Sarkissova, curator for the performance festival My Wild Flag.
The exhibition is supported by the City of Stockholm and the Swedish Art's Council.
