Elin Lundgren & Petter Pettersson - Komma nära (Come close)
Participants: Elin Lundgren, Petter Pettersson and Lo Pettersson-Lundgren
Duration: 6 minutes each time, in 3 hours
The audience enters a dark room one by one. A small boy-man in black clothes and a hat silently directs the person to a small room of 2 x2 m inside the dark room. The small room is brightly lit, and a wolverine and a wolf are standing inside waiting. Seriously and with great concentration the boy-man stare in to the audience eyes. The two animal figures slowly start to dance closely behind him. Their dance gets more and more intense. No music is heard, only the sound from their dance steps and heavy breathing.

Elin Lundgren (b. 1973 in Stockholm lives and works in Malmö) and Petter Pettersson (b.1972 in Kristinehamn, Sweden live and work in Malmo.) have worked in different forms of visual- and performing arts since 1999. In works that touches upon alienation, violence and failures Elin and Petter accumulate their pieces like living pictures. An absurd raw humor encounters a bare documentary narration.
