”Expedition Exhibition”, a show held at Atelier Petrejus in Hammarbyhöjden on May 25-26 2013 by the art group 4x: John Andersson, Peter Bigestans, Joakim Hansén and Niklas Nenzén.

In addition to showing their paintings and drawings, 4x built a jungle for the show, and populated it with statues, animals and a resident monster. On the vernissage day a lecture on the epistemological and poetic nature of research expeditions was held by Mattias Forshage. Mattias and Emma Lundenmark later read poetry.

All photos were taken by 4x and Eva Bigestans.
