Asle Lauvland Pettersen (b. 1978) is a Norwegian Artist, Director and Theatre Scenographer. He graduated from The National Academy of Arts, Olso, Norway and The Royal Danish Theatre Academy, Copenhagen in 2008. Pettersen’s work consists of conceptual, fundamental installations. In his practice, video, objects and performances are often combined with an expression of almost dogmatic conceptual ideas. An equal amount of technology, and an almost naive aesthetic, provides Pettersen's work with a tempting surface, but as the layers are deconstructed more universes and questions emerge, which encourage the audience to respond and react to.
