Visiting President of the Senate (2013)

Serie of 12 color photographs, 23,6 x 15,8 inch

// Like an updating through photographs of the Petit Guide Rose des Maisons Closes de 1928 (Little Pink Guide of the Whorehouses of 1928), after the application of Marthe Richard’s law of the 13th April 1946 involving the closing of French brothels. Some informations on the use and the condition of the construction now highlight the erasure of the prior identity of these buildings by the passing time. These photographs also evince a complete disregard of prostitution within the collective memory and the contemporary social landscape.
