Catalogue des Chefs-d’oeuvre du Musée du Louvre

This catalogue is a facsimile edition of a 1976 Louvre catalogue. 48 images are replaced by photographs that Aëgerter took during three visits at the museum, “an artistic quote”. She used a tourist camera and all the pictures she made during these three days.

The well-known catalogue and the exhibited works look so familiar that it takes a while before you realize you find yourself in a cut and pasted-reality. It seems that the future has been incorporated in this book from the seventies, which causes a strange loop of time.
