The last in a series of four one-week solo exhibitions called Svensk konst, Call of Heart is the second part of the Stockholm-based artist’s project divided in two chapters. The characters in the work are ‘on a journey’ between a safe, calm and quiet landscape depicted in the first, and a more hostile environment in the second, with the middle part remaining unknown and unseen.
An accompanying text by the artist narrates the character Eir’s thoughts: “hand upon the creature’s chest and whispers a meaning similar to our everything is going to be alright.” Pedersen’s practice is mainly sculptural, using various materials like plaster, silicone, ceramic and styrofoam to create narratives that are “often an allegory for more personal and common feelings in life.”**
