They could mean the same thing, if, let's say, someone were describing a scene from a movie. However, there appears to be a slight difference between the two, intonation-wise.
Consider the following scenarios.
Some guy directing a movie is telling the actors where to stand.
Scenario 1: Mrs. Chen stands here. Mr. Chen stands over there. The policeman stands behind that sofa. (etc.)
Scenario 2: Here stands Mrs. Chen. Over there stands Mr. Chen. And behind that sofa stands the policeman.
There is a slight difference in the way the director sounds. I wonder if others see it the same way I do.
