J. Pedersen, Urd

I work with painting, drawing and graphics in parallel with performance and sound. Themes and concepts I explore are: Love, doubt and pace in confrontation with the common everyday, ordinary and non-spectacular events. These terms serve as keywords for my work process. I’m curious about whether and how the personal may be reduced to clichés in art, or if it still has sustainability, thus challenging where the personal belongs in today’s society.
