Abstract

The work consists of photographic series shot during the production of two recent film projects - Plänterwäld and The Philharmonie Project – filmed in an abandoned amusement park and orchestral concert hall respectively. The photographs share a focus on the mise en scène—the stage and backstage—of contrasting forms of entertainment venues. They depict sites of performativity in which the implied audience is the cohering element. However, in these images nothing is being performed. The absence serves as an exploration of latency in relation to the spectacle. Sound and movement, players and audience linger outside the image and create the tension between pause and action, stillness and potential.
