Il faut confronter les idées vagues avec des images claires (Jean-Luc Godard)
Dan Lageryd works mainly with the moving image and focuses upon themes such as time, space, repetition, perception and architecture.
Amore Nostro Modo: an artist book project. "Odysseus en route to Arlanda, Ösmo next to Palermo, Margherita meets Sjuksköterskan. By juxtaposing images from pizzerias and other fast food restaurants with poetry based on pizza names found in some of the more than five hundred pizza menus collected in the greater Stockholm area 2017-2018, Dan Lageryd’s ambition is to depict a city and its inhabitants in a time of increased movement and migration."
