Recordings and notes from a journey to England and Wales in pursuit of the spirit of Dylan Thomas and other British writers:
This series observes various buildings, interiors and objects that were encountered primarily in staged places like museums and hotels. These images are juxtaposed to images of exteriors (not seen here) which explore the idea of the pittoresque and the tradition of British landscape painting. In their juxtapositions, spatial arrangement, omissions and approximations the images allude to a film like story and at the same time gently touch on subjects of feminism, the colonial past, stilted emotions, the romantics and a quest for the poetic.
In an installation context the images are presented in combination with texts from fiction, observations on romanticism and associative objects.
