We are very happy to have Henriette Pedersen and Company again in the gallery: Performing romance, riding the swan:

Henriette Pedersens performance trilogy Animal Magnetism (AM) revolves around the theme of hysteria. As an Orlando of hysteria, performer Kristine Karåla Øren walks through times and expresses the hysteric evolution. From the classic hysteria (AM1), through the dirty and suppressive sides of female sexuality, with references to Freud’s theories of penis envy (AM2), and all the way to the male hysteria (AM3). In her new trilogy, Riding Romance, Pedersen will do a make-over on some central works of the romantic area, starting with the ballet Swan Lake. Then she’ll work her way through one of Caspar David Friedrich’s paintings, until she reaches the fairytale of Red Riding Hood.
