What inspired you to to take this photo?
My partner sometimes complains about my bad habit of leaving the cupboard doors open. He is closing them, only to find them open again the next time he enters the kitchen. He says it’s like having a poltergeist in the apartment…
Your photos are often involving strange lightning and mysterious installations. What’s behind the kitchen cupboard?
One way to interpret this and many of my other photographs, is as a metaphor of the subconscious. Electricity has somehow connected the different parts of this kitchen, making them come to life. Like the synapses and electric impulses of the brain can trigger a forgotten memory. Allusions to the supernatural is a recurring element in my work, where the lighting in my images often seem to indicate some kind of elusive presence. This is my way to make visible the ongoing processes that otherwise never materialise from the world of thought.
