    CINEMAGIC TOUR

    Start: 2003-

    - An artproject about the disappearance of cinemas and the change of cinematic urban landscapes. Based on own visual documentation and research in different archives in Mecklenburg, Helsinki, Denmark, USA, Latvia, England, Lithuania, Scotland.

    “Cinemagic Tour” is a long-term project, which contains various research processes and presentations through montage-based artworks, public screening events, publications, webpage and exhibitions. The works presented are photographic prints, slight projections and video- & sound-installations. Website is developed with Film, and Designgroup Oncotype: www.oncotype.dk. Later a book is planned to be published.

    “Cinemagic Tour” is an ongoing art project about the meaning of storytelling, imagination and visual memory in relation to special architectural sites. It focuses on closed down and converted cinemas and questions how people deal with questions related to this. It is a long-term project, which contains various research and presentations through montage-based artworks, public screening events, exhibitions, publications and webpage. The works presented have been photographic prints, slight projections and video- & sound-installations.

    In 2003 I received a 3 months artist in residency at Mecklenburg Künstlerhaus in Germany and later in 2004 another 2 months residency at Nordic Institute of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, Finland. My purpose with the two residencies was to develop a site-related project about the relationship between memory, space and archival processes. I focused on the structure of closed down and transformed cinematic spaces and initiated collaborations with archives and libraries in the cities.
    Through 2 and 3 months I travelled around in Mecklenburg and Helsinki where I developed this interest into a kind of visual mapping of cinematic places. I did research about the constructions of cinematic experience, local memory and archival processes by photographing the empty or nowadays converted movie theatres. I collected text- and image-related material from archives, libraries, fleemarkets. And a part of the research consists of interviews and conversations with local inhabitants.

    Photos from my research point out how the former cinemas are derelicted, empty or have been transformed and now contain religious, sport based or other entertainment activities. I wanted to capture that specific atmosphere of being in a space with different levels of time. What you find in those buildings now is vague visual traces of the original function of space. It raised for me not only questions about the preservation of architecture but also questions about how people consider their role in this when they use and transform a space with a history. It appeared to me that we deal with questions about limitation of social space when cinemas in smaller local areas in a city are being closed down.

    A large part of my project was about collecting historical material in collaboration with the Finnish Film Archive and interviewing people who work there. Here I got in contact with employers who were very helpfull and collaborative. An unexpected outcome of this collaboration might in the future be to include my images into their archive.

    Through this mapping of cinematic spaces and working with archival processes, I found a multilayered narrative of Mecklenburg and Helsinki as sites and historical mixed reality. These processes generated a lot of new ideas. So when The Danish Arts Council in spring 2005 decided to award my project with a working grant I decided to initiate a similar research in Denmark and to develop all the material into a larger presentation at Overgaden, Institute of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen.

    Cinemagic Tour # II: Scenes From An Imaginary Place

    - A site-related project developed for Deveron Arts, Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Scotland 2005-2006.

    In 2005 I was invited to do a site-related project at Deveron Arts, Huntly in Scotland. And I immediately responded to the fact that the town once had a lively cinema culture, which now has almost disappeared. With the advent of the final demolition of the Picture House in Huntly, I wished to initiate thoughts with local inhabitants about collective visual memory and the transformation of urban landscape and social life. To put Huntly on a cinematic map, as lots of these picture houses across the world are being demolished or at best converted into something else. Further I wanted to collect material about the history of the site and search for the former staff from the picture house.

    It seemed that I was not the only one who was curious to see how it looks like inside the cinema today: Gordon McTavish, former film projectionist in Huntly Palace said to me: ”If you ever get in there, I definitely want to go with you. I wonder how it looks today and I still have things in there, which I have not been able to get out. Nobody, for years has been allowed to go in there.” In my research Gordon McTavish became an important participant, both concerning collecting information, participation in events and as a storyteller in the project.
    As nobody in 20 years has been allowed inside Huntly’s crumbling former Picture House in order to take photographs I found it important to ‘bring out’ images from this hermetically sealed cinema. To let people in Huntly know about the inner secrets of the present building. After negotiations with the Aberdeenshire Council I was allowed to enter and photograph the Picture House alone at my own risk. This happened on the 10th February 2006. This photo session became a kind of street performance with a joiner from the council standing outside the cinema.

    For the second visit on the 22nd February 2006 I was allowed to enter again. While in there, I found a number of fascinating items, which had been left to rot in the old building which is likely to be demolished soon. Also I was here allowed to bring the former projectionist into the cinema to have a last look inside. I realised my project no longer was just about doing photographs. It developed performative and mass media aspects because so many local inhabitants and the newspapers Huntly Express and The Press & Journal followed closely my research about the cinema.
    During my research at 4 different stays in Huntly from November 2005 – April 2006, I found people who once worked in the picture house. They got involved in the project by telling stories and donating material from the cinema. I also arranged cinema evenings with lectures and film screenings in The Stewarts Hall to initiate discussion about the meaning of cinema in relation to Huntly’s local life and memory.

    At the end I concluded this Huntly leg of my Cinemagic Tour with an in situ exhibition that was held over three Huntly venues, starting Thursday 27th April 2006:
    - Installation of Huntly Picture House Artifacts and Memorabilia. Solo exhibition, The Brander Museum, 27th April – 19 August, 2006.
    - Unveiling of Images Reception Installation & performative event, Stewarts Hall.
    - Outdoor Video projection onto former Huntly Picture House Gordon Street.

    The show opened with an installation of Huntly Picture House Artifacts and Memorabilia at the local history museum ”The Brander Museum”. As collaboration with Aberdeenshire Heritage I transferred the objects from the former Picture House, so they could be registered and put on display at the local Brander Museum who have now become custodians to the objects. Here I also presented video-montages and audio from my research in Huntly.
    Next there was a reception of unveiling the images from inside the cinema at the town’s Stewarts Hall. As a performative event and installation I screened several video-montages and film projections. A pianist performed cinema music. Here there was now a chance to witness what has become of what was once a vibrant part of the community.
    The project sparked a great deal of interest and fond memories among different generations in Huntly. Many of particularly the elder generation were delighted to see themselves on film when the former projectionist Gordon McTavish from the cinema screened a film of the 1951 Huntly Gala at the second Cinemagic event on March 23rd. He also performed at the Unveiling of Images Reception with more stories from his years at the cinema in Huntly and screened a 16mm film. The final event of the evening turned the old Picture House on Gordon Street inside out. A projection of images from inside the building was screened onto the boarded up frontage, so that exhibition goers and passers by finally saw what lies behind the walls, as if the doors had been opened one last time.

    ‘Cinemagic Tour: Scenes from an Imaginary Place’ contained ideas about storytelling, imagination and visual memory in relation to a cinematic architectural site. I mixed collected local archive material with my own documentation without attempting to represent the history of Huntly within the idea of truth. My focus was more about guestioning the tradition of oral storytelling and constructions of mixed reality. My approach contained both local and global concerns. For me as a traveling artist, the town Huntly with its closed down cinema was a special site, but also a site like anywhere else. As such it was a station in a Cinemagic Tour.
    Finally, it was a reflection of people’s storytelling what essentially this montage of Huntly’s cinematic past became - developed in collaboration with local people but edited and presented from a traveller’s point of view. At the very end of my project, I realised I had no idea it would turn so many ‘scenes’ inside out from the hermetically sealed cinema in Huntly, just by taking photographs. I guess, what happened for me, was that an inaccessible cinematic site not only became a multilayered historical site, but also an imaginary place.

    Cinemagic Tour: Selected Documents

    Today the project Cinemagic Tour consist of a larger working archive where elements can be selected and juxtaposed in installations in various formats.
    Since 2006 I have presented at exhibitions different installations based on my own visual documentation and collected archive material from research in Mecklenburg, Helsinki, Copenhagen, USA, Latvia, England, Lithuania, Scotland 2003-2009.
    The works are spatial montages / installations of photographic prints, slights, video- and sound montages, wooden constructions, glass and painted walls.
    They are developed from a long term research about different site’s closed down and transformed cinemas, their local filmculture and visual memory in local archives. The installations consist of storytelling based on both factual and fictional elements including a story about a group of cineasts researching the dissapearence of a cinematic landscape and several stories by a former film projectionist.

    Cinemagic Tour # III: Selected Documents

    Cinemagic Tour # III: Selected Documents was the latest and largest presentation of the project Cinemagic Tour. It is an installation with several works based on digitally processed material from my own archive. It was developed for my solo show at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark 2010. The show was the first exhibition in the museum’s serie ”Arkivet” about visual artists working with archives.
    For this occasion I developed a new presentation of Cinemagic Tour as a large scale spatial montage installed in 2 rooms of the museum with several montages of different medias as video, digital prints, sound, text and paper collages. These works were based on collected official historical information and fiction mixed with my own visual documentation.

    Cinemagic Tour # III: Selected Documents consists of both former works and several new works developed from my own working archive from the project Cinemagic Tour. It’s based on research at different place’s closed down and transformed cinema spaces and in local historical image- and film archives in Germany, Finland, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, USA, England and Scotland.
    As new elements Cinemagic Tour # III: Selected Documents includes 4 sound montages with stories told by Gordon McTavish, the former filmprojectionist in Huntly Palace in Scotland. These sound montages are edited from several taped interviews during 2005-2006:
    One sound-montage takes us through a closed down cinema space told in an calm and meditative way by McTavish while he draws a map of the building from his memory. One is an associative flow of thoughts about the meaning of film projecting and his memories which appears with this. Another sound montage is extracs from a talk by Gordan McTavish during a filmscreening in Huntly in spring 2006. The last one is an edited version of a conversation between McTavish and me – where he as the film projectionist put questions to me as the artist during my research of Cinemagic Tour in Scotland.

    The installation also includes a large selection of textdocuments, fragtments from newspapers, letters, maps and photos from historical official and private archives. Some material are developed into video montages and lambda-prints. Some material are as original documents juxtaposed with digitally processed prints behind glass in wooden constructions or at the blackpainted wall.

    The exhibition Cinemagic Tour # III: Selected Documents focuses on the disappearence of cinematic “landscape” and cinema buildings as modern ruins in perspective of urban change. I have fundamentally been concerned with concepts such as the construction of memory and the production of history in relation with transformation of the archival document and artistic documentation of site. To explore the interdependency of collective and personal processes
    - in a way where I draw upon historical material from official and private archives, fiction and mixing this with my own visual documentation to create narratives to unfold in physical space.

    CINEMAGIC TOUR

    ** - Baggrundstekst: Cinemagic Tour
    I 2003 startede jeg det fortløbende projekt “Cinemagic Tour”. - Et billedkunstnerisk researchprojekt der undersøger film, biografrummet, kinematografi og arkiver som kulturelle hukommelseskonstruktioner. Med fokus på filmrummets forsvinding og forandring samt de bevaringsproblematikker der følger med i.f.t. biografers nedlukning og omdannelse som sociale og æstetiske rum, forholder projektet sig også til spørgsmål omkring urbane strukturer, lokalsamfunds degradering, lokalhistorisk konstruktion og stedsarkiviske praksisformer.
    I ”Cinemagic Tour” kortlægger jeg forskellige steder med en kinematografisk optik. I Mecklenburg, det tidligere Øst-Tyskland, startede jeg i 2003 med at fotografere nedlagte, tomme og nu funktionsløse biografer. Her interviewede jeg tidligere filmoperatører og indsamlede arkivmateriale om lokal filmarkitektur og om hvordan lokale filmklubber forgæves har kæmpet for at bevare små biografer. I 2004 fortsatte jeg i Finland, hvor jeg i Helsinkis forskellige bykvarterer fotograferede over 23 nedlukkede og omdannede biografer, der nu rummer andre kulturelle funktioner som religiøse, sports- og fritidsaktiviteter. Her indsamlede jeg også information om stedets filmarkitekturhistoriske visuelle dokumentation på Det Finske Filmarkiv og interviewede en række folk om Helsinkis biograflandskab. I forår/sommer 2005 arbejdede jeg på en lignende proces i Københavnsområdet, som jeg afsluttede med en større soloudstilling på Overgaden - Institut for Samtidskunst, august 2005. Her inddrog jeg mit eget fotografiske materiale fra forskellige researchfaser og sammenstillede det med indsamlet bearbejdet arkivmateriale i en installation der både bestod af fiktive og dokumentariske narrative elementer.

    ”Cinemagic Tour # II: Scenes from an Imaginary Place”

    Senere i efteråret 2005 blev jeg inviteret af Deveron Arts i Skotland til at opstarte en ny research i Skotland. I denne forbindelse realiserede jeg et omfattende udstillingsprojekt hvor jeg koncentrerede mig om blot een enkelt filmbiografs historiske, æstetiske og sociale betydning i forhold til forandringerne i et skotsk lokalsamfund. I byen Huntly i Aberdeenshire undersøgte jeg fra november 2005- maj 2006 nedlukningen af byens lokale biograf i forhold til byens lokal arkiviske hukommelsesstof og dets forskelligartede lokalhistoriske aktivitet i.f.t. stedets forståelse af sig selv som filmhistorisk urbant rum.
    I kunstinstitutionen Deveron Arts regi og via involvering af flere af byens institutioner og enkeltpersoner, udviklede jeg en 3 delt In Situ udstilling, ”Cinemagic Tour # II: Scenes from an Imaginary Place”. Projektet involverede det lokale historiske museum; ”The Brander Museum”, Huntly Express, den lokale avis’s billede og tekstarkiv, Aberdeenshire Heritage; - den nordskotske Kulturarvstyrelse, ”The Stewarts Hall”; - byens rådhushal og 1. sted for datidens Laterna Magica visning samt de lokale myndigheder; ”Aberdeenshire Council”, der ejede biografbygningen og nu i 2009 endelig har nedrevet den. Gennem research-perioden afholdt jeg en række filmscreeninger og foredrag som perspektiverede den forsvindende filmkultur i byen i.f.t. andre steders filmkultur. Over tid opbyggedes et lokal filmforum hvori biografens tidligere filmoperatør viste film og fortalte historier relateret til byens biograf.

    Den endelige præsentation af ”Cinemagic Tour # II: Scenes from an Imaginary Place” foregik som en 6 måneders udstilling på The Brander Museum med artefakter jeg havde hentet ud fra biografen og som den skotske kulturarvsstyrelse nu pludselig havde fået interesse i at registrere og indlemme i det regionale museumsvæsens beholdning. Dette blev sammenstillet med min egen visuelle dokumentation og indsamlet arkivmateriale. Desuden afholdt jeg en performativ event med afsløring af billeder fra biografen, hvor også jeg og filmoperatøren Gordon Mc Tavish holdt foredrag med filmscreenings og biografmusik i The Stewarts Hall. Dette blev afrundet med en udendørs screening af interiørfotos fra biografen på den lukkede biografs facade på Gordon Street. Hele projektet sluttede med en publikation der opsamlede de forskellige spor.

    Fra at handle mest om indsamling af arkivmateriale og dokumentation af det nedlukkede utilgængelige biografrum, der i 20 år stod aflåst for byens borgere, udviklede minresearch sig i en mere ukontrollabel retning der involverede en stor del af byens lokalhistoriske aktører, byens tidligere biografgængere og medarbejdere fra biografen. Et vigtigt element i denne proces blev samarbejdet med den tidligere filmoperatør Gordon McTavish, der ikke blot engagerede sig som fortæller i min research, dokumentation og indsamling af information, men Mc Tavish blev også en vigtig aktiv performer i offentlige arrangementer. Desuden vakte det også to skotske avisers interesse for at rapportere løbende om den lukkede biograf. De rejste debat om biografens tilstand og dens fremtid og efterspurgte løbende min visuelle dokumentation af stedet. Elementer fra min dokumentation af biografen blev først til sidst ved den endelige præsentation i maj 2006 overleveret og bragt i aviserne.
    Som 2 uplanlagte spor, medførte det at The Huntly Express og The Press & Journal blev medfortællere i mit projekt og producerede dokumenter om byens biograf. På denne måde blev selve processen fra start til slut tæt dokumenteret via avisernes publicerede artikler og spisesedler på byens gader. Mit sidste projekt i Skotland v/ Deveron Arts blev et eksempel på, hvordan en hel by kan blive scene for en performativ rumlig montage. Et projekt, der i høj grad kom til at handle om billedkunstnerisk praksis som en form for hypotetisk arkæologi med det fotografiske som social og arkivæstetisk handling.

    ”Cinemagic Tour” er i dag et stadigt voksende arbejdsarkiv med fotografisk, tekstbaseret, lydmæssigt og filmisk materiale. Med både egen visuel dokumentation og en mængde indsamlet lokalhistorisk arkivmateriale samt allerede realiserede værkproduktioner. Herfra udvikler jeg fortsat nye installationer med fotoserier, film- tekst- og lydmontager med nye fortællinger ud fra forskellige researchfasers materiale om forskellige steders kinematografiske landskab og historiske dokumenter. Dette præsenteres både i billedkunstneriske enkeltværker og i større installationer der udvikles i forskellig form og specifikt til forskellige steders fysiske visningsrum.
    I værkerne indbygger jeg referencer i.f.t. det filmiske rum mangeartede betydninger. De fungerer som små ”scener” der kan omarrangeres på forskellige måder i rum. Den visuelle bearbejdning med sammenstilling af egen dokumentation og indsamlet arkivmateriale bygger på opfattelsen af billeder og historieproduktion som illusionsrum og virkelighedskonstruktion. Installationerne fremstår som rumlige montager, hvor nedlagte og transformerede biografrums dobbelttydighed sættes i forbindelse med fri association og fiktionalisering.
