Work to be shown in the context of a museum


Framed C-print with text.
40x50 cm.

The print consists of an brightened and faded image of the exterior of the crystal palace when it held the great exhibition in London 1851. The photograph are conjoined with information to the visitors of the Pan American exposition in 1901 "Please remember that when you enter the gates you are part of the show".
The crystal palace was notably unique in it´s time due to that large parts of the construction was made in glass. Here conjoined with the text, the print enlightens the act of observing and being observed at the same time, a translucent act, in this case through an historical take on exhibition.
