Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 17. september 2022 --

I believe the nighttime to be more political than the daytime, if not more. Specifically in Nordic countries where we experience the shift between day/night seasonally, I am interested in how we can create space that is daring and where we can learn how to care from others. I aim to investigate the social norms of the night and those who break them.

KAETO SWEENEY is an artist based in Bergen. Kaeto is particularly interested in symbols of freedom from a queer lens. He is a filmmaker and performer whose work is shaped around the ways we tell stories and the way we receive them, often referring to queer and trans narratives. In those works creating intimacies and understanding the society from a personal point of view is central. He holds an MFA from the Bergen Art Academy where he is currently the bachelor program manager and works at BEK, Bergen Centre for Electronic Art.
