Les Louvres: Sections 7, 11 and 17, 2019
For two years, between 2010 and 2012, I was an artist in residence in the Louvre in Paris. I was documenting the building of the Louvre’s newest and eighth department, Le Département des art de l’Islam as well as the building of another Louvre in Abu Dhabi.
The videos below proceed from official Louvre footage I accessed during my residency in Paris. The stories I recount are informed by my various encounters in Paris and Abu Dhabi.
