Cathedrals at Sunset

Variations of light patterns on a poster of one of Claude Monet’s Rouen Cathedral at sunset. The original poster is reproduced as a facsimile edition. A series of 7.

Monet painted 27 versions of this cathedral, all variations in colour. Light is the source of the 7 variations of this poster.

Instead of the physical cathedral, Aëgerter’s source is one of the posters by the paintings of Monet that she treats in a similar way; ‘reshaping “the” real’ with a high degree of meticulousness.
