Backyard History I, detail, texts in English and Danish on glass display case: "In 1983 my family and I moved into a house on the countryside. One day I stepped on a large shard of glass while playing in the garden. I didn’t realize what had happened until I noticed the bloody footprints behind me in the house. When I discovered the glass shard in my foot, the pain became unbearable. We found that the previous owners had used the garden as a dump and it was filled with broken glass and porcelain - restricting our play in the garden thereafter."
”I 1983 flyttede min familie og jeg ind i et hus på landet. En dag trådte jeg et stort stykke glasskår op i foden, mens jeg legede i haven. Jeg var ikke klar over, hvad der var sket, før jeg bemærkede de blodige fodspor efter mig i huset. Da jeg opdagede glasset I foden, blev smerten uudholdeligt. Vi fandt senere ud af, at de tidligere ejere havde brugt haven som en losseplads, og den var fyldt med ituskåret glas og porcelæn – det begrænsede vor leg i haven.”

A paraphrase of a film roll made as a child back in 1983. The film roll is a remake of the childrens puppet show, Sørøver Sally (Sally the Pirate) shown in Danish television. I was very fascinated by Sally the Pirate as a child - so caugth up that I had to reproduce the story with paper, markers and tape in my very own, meter-long film roll by using playback. Sally the Pirate is about a boy called Frede, who is living the quiet life on the countryside until he meets the fearless Sally the Pirate....
