There Is Nothing Ghostly About This Space, It Has Edges

Filmed at the ‘Farewell Ceremony Room’ (Rum för avsked) at St. Göran’s Hospital, the work display a series of images of selected interior details of the space, including the cloak room and the waiting room. The amplified background sounds from lamps and the ventilation system, in this desolate space, activate an unsettling atmosphere of restlessness and tension.

* There Is Nothing Ghostly About This Space, It Has Edges was originally shown as a video installation as part of the exhibition ROOM TONE,

Director Statement

My art practice is based around an interest in existential, spiritual and psychical experiences, in relation to atmosphere, spatiality and the psychology of space. My particularly interest is in the notion of ‘the empty room’, absence and presence and the possibility of rooms and interiors somehow communicating feelings and ideas to us.

Through experimenting with materials from ‘captured’ experiences of spaces, moods, extraordinary events and scientific studies, I develop atmospheric, investigatory video and installation works based on the interaction between the physical room and its interiority, the constructed installation, the moving image and the human psyche of the visitor.
