Denny’s films are informed by essayistic documentary-making, Hauntology, collage, memory and psychogeography. Using photography, film, text, sound, narrative voice and found footage, these assemblages explore landscapes – real and imagined – in a society seemingly in post-capitalist decline.
Revisting A Vanishing Land, 2022. How have the visitation and occupation, by certain cultural figures (including George Orwell, the Freud clan and Mark Fisher) at certain times, within the place that is the vanishing land of tidal and coastal Suffolk, influenced a large segment of contemporary Britain’s current siege mentality and preoccupation with nostalgia and possibly unconsciously with Hauntology?
Ghosts of the Arctic, 2023 traces aspects of the life and the search for the missing works of fictional artist Edward Knorr by the fictional disappeared art critic Albert Bernstein. The journey from the Baltic states to Northeast England and onto the Russian Arctic, carrying loss, love, war and political and social turmoil into our lost imagined futures and the era of the commodification of memories.
