Artist Statement

Since 1990 Peter Johansson has been working thematically on his own childhood and experiences in Dalarna (Dalecarlia). This landscape is situated at the ”heart” of Sweden and has, since the end of the 19th century, acted as a romantic national metaphor for Swedish identity. This metaphor has also been heavily exploited by the tourist industry and still is.

Peter Johansson´s work is made with humor, folklorist materials as well as up-to-date technical presentations, all made with the purpose of bringing the kingdom of Sweden down and putting an end to racist acts and aggression.
