“4”

DVD-publication and an exhibition with 4 film-loops shown in the Film-museum situated at the Norwegian film-institute in Oslo 2000. In addition, I showed 4  images on photographic paper mounted on aluminum (110 x 165 cm) and a print on canvas measuring (approx. 110 x 340 cm)

The prints exhibited were the images on the sleeve and inside the DVD-cover. With the film-loops they revealed a continuous story throughout the project.

In the 4 animated or processed film-projects on the DVD, I created soundtracks from samples of my own voice and instruments I don’t know how to play. This was a first for me.

The Worshipper

In 1999 I spent the evenings of the summer and winter solstices and also the  autumn and spring equinoxes, filming myself worshipping streetlights. Artificial lightsources illuminating the darkness. Maybe in the hope that they carried divine inspiration.
Again and again, ..disappointedly departing to the right, out of the fixed camera’s frame.

To give an air of precision to the project, I specifically filmed at locations on the geographic north, south, east and west side of Oslo. One for each solstice or equinox.  – The “mirrored” version here makes the locations look a little bit like altar-pieces. I wish I had thought of that at the time.

Ris-Riis

8mm film footage and Betacam video-tape. The title stems from trying to make meaning out of shadows filmed on the walls of the Ris Church and at the Riis Gallery in Oslo, which are parts of this piece, but I also liked how the word seemed to stretch out in the repetition of it.

The Sea

Fragmented and “coded” messages projected on a duplicate scenery of land, sea and sky. A one-screen, “diptych” version, of  The Sea project
