Staged photographs in which six different locations were superimposed on the 9 square metres of a former brothel.
To prepare for Opening Soon / Opening Now, Laurence Aëgerter collected images of the new functions of the space by combining Google Images with the search terms ‘swimming pool’, ‘library’ ‘golf Club’, ‘symposium’ ‘temple’ and ‘snack bar’. The images were then projected in the relevant context, and these projections were also photographed. The sink and the clock are recurrent elements in these projected spaces, anchor points of reality.
