EN:
Kiesenhofer’s exploration of queer spaces and architecture manifests in the highly formal and black-mirror-like photographs of his Indoor series, presenting filtered insights into hardly accessible queer underground sex venues, darkrooms, gay-clubs and saunas around the world.

The photographs are taken during daytime when the clubs are closed and are layered and framed with grey glass. The motifs, barely visible through the dark glass filter, point to the disappearance of queer spaces from the urban cityscape.

DE:
Kiesenhofers Auseinandersetzung mit queeren Räumen und Architektur manifestiert sich in den sehr formalen und „Black-Mirror" ähnlichen Fotografien seiner Indoor Serie, die gefilterte Einblicke in kaum zugängliche queere Sex-Clubs, Darkrooms und Gay-Saunen in internationalen Metropolen gewährt.

Die Fotografien werden tagsüber aufgenommen, wenn die Clubs geschlossen sind und anschließend mit grauem Glas geschichtet und gerahmt. Der dunkle Glasfilter und die dadurch kaum mehr sichtbaren Motive, verweisen auf das Verschwinden queerer Räume aus urbanen Stadtlandschaften.
