  • I have a deep interest in states of consciousness and phenomenological associations with specific locations. My recent work depicts the deserted interior of an abandoned cinema, Stenløse Bio, on the outskirts of Copenhagen. I used to go to the cinema in my childhood and watched movies there. The building is now dilapidated, run-down and covered in graffiti. No one has been allowed to enter the cinema in the last four years, aside from teenagers who enter illegally. Six months ago I was allowed inside the cinema, to document and record it. This has culminated in the film YAOI which collages atmospheric footage and sound together, giving a sense of the young teenager’s emotional life in the context of the cinema’s character.
