Carpets and curtains outline the reprogrammed spaces and introduce a new heraldry that narrates about the content of the local archives (such as from the local Fine Art Museum, the Frac Centre and the House of Jeanne d’Arc).
The spirits of the past and present are merged and create rich contexts for researchers and visitors of the International Research Center of the University of Orléans to meet-and work in. Even when not in use these ‘room in a room’ interiors are intriguing spatial still lifes that portray several layers of time.
