Akay + Peter Sweden

Akay and Peter explore the creative use of public space, creating installations such as swings hung from bridges, building small houses on ignored pieces of land and creating a “shadow zoo” for commuters alongside a highway. Akay and Peter are young Stockholm artists, and the urban streets are his ever-expanding gallery. Their work as semiotic guerrilla warfare serves no other agenda than the idea that public space belongs to public expression.“Stockholm is too boring. As soon as the city comes to life, they try to sweep away any sign of creativity. I just want to make people think and wonder. If there actually were an obvious ideology behind Akayism, people wouldn’t need to reflect the way they do now”.
