Ann Pettersson uses photography to construct a fictional reality. She deconstructs the conventional view of our surroundings and reveals a world unlike the one that we generally regard as being tangible. She dissociates herself from literal representation by reacting to the local conditions and manipulating these in such a way, that a dreamlike, sometimes illusory image is created. Pettersson seeks out the metropolitan fringes and underdeveloped, only ever partially cultivated areas. These natural and cultural landscapes appear in her work as symbols for the state of the human condition, in which an emotional sensibility is also only ever partially revealed.
