MATTIAS PETTERSSON – ALIEN WORRIOR PRINCESS
Dragons, weapons, spaceships, aliens, fire, monsters, dangerous animals. They’ve never interested me. Through ceramic sculpture I meet the man in me, the way society has always wanted me to. But this time from a queer place, on my own terms.
What could the male role be boiled down to, if not a little dinosaur on a totem pole? We see inside a boy’s room peopled by monstrous reptilians, but also by elusive emotional expressions such as anxiety, awkwardness and vulnerability.
