Life-size staged photographs of people standing in front of iconic paintings in the Louvre Museum, Paris.
Aëgerter’s Louvre photographs deal with a normal situation which is re-enacted outside the opening hours. The photographs have not been Photoshopped or manipulated in any way. The encounters are potential realities resulting from observations and earlier experiences with the Catalogue des Chefs-d’oeuvre du Musée du Louvre.
The observers of Aëgerter’s photographs might identify with the spectators. What are we looking at?
