Peter OLSEN studied fine arts at Jutland Art Academy in Denmark. In his work the starting point is often a specific material, it's materiality and a basic fascination relating to it. He works in the public space and the final works are the result of an action there. With photo and video he works with the material from this space and presents it in an art context. These investigations are based on a strong visuality through which the material is aestheticised. The effect of this transformation of material or space becomes a play between function and abstraction.
