Pernilla Zetterman

Equestrian culture, and the rites and rituals associated with it, is the focal point of Zetterman’s Close. She has observing the interplay, physical awareness and the word-less communication between the rider and horse. In this culture, Zetterman finds an environment charged with issues of control, discipline and power, but also of love and trust. The video project Close express conflict feelings such as intimacy/distance and tenderness/roughness.
