About the artist

Per Teljer is born 1970 in Sweden and lives in Berlin. He works exclusively with video-art. ‘…The violence of Teljer’s works is far from grandiose. It is the petty violence of the small town, made nastier still in that it is personally directed and so much part of everyday life. Teljer as victim is also not the martyr sacrificing himself to some great cause rather he is one of innocents massacred and unnumbered. His characters are the harmless, the helpless, and the handicapped and it is precisely those least able to defend themselves that are victimised…’
