On Karl Magnus Peterssons artistic practice
Karl Magnus Petersson’s world moves between history, memory and cultural heritage with its impact on the present here and now. The artist captures fragments of events which can now be seen as past memories that may seem uncertain in the interplay between a public official history writing, the collective and the private memory. Memories that work in the past but to a very high degree can be real for their contemporaries, even if they are forgotten, repressed or hidden. They grab our attention.
