Chodzko has long been interested in collapsing past, present and future in his work in order to create alternate realities. In a number of film, slide and photographic works he has invented fictitious scenarios, set in a not-too-distant future, that blend the familiar with the strange. Through fantasy, wonder and make-believe, they compel us to re-consider our sense of place and community. In Pyramid (consisting of a documentary film and information sign) Chodzko is reporting back from a moment in a utopian Folkestone. Keen to puzzle and confound visitors, Chodzko ensnares them in a myth of his own making.
