I use cinema as a departure point for many of my works.
What makes cinema a special exhibition venue is the absolute focus on the image and
the almost complete neglect of its own physical environment. In all the media industries (film,
broadcast, press, new media) the real image-makers are hidden behind the images they produce.
Cinema, as a venue and as a cultural construction, outlines this separation in very clear spatial
terms. Therefore, cinema becomes a strong conceptual metaphor and rich formal tool to address
our illusions and our reality and the distance between them.
