Installation by Véronique Bourgoin.

Véronique Bourgoin, artist and founder of the Atelier Reflexe, created a federating installation in the manner of a collage of juxtaposed worlds combining publications, artworks, sculptures and photographs drawn from the collections of Atelier Reflexe and the Royal Book Lodge. A transportable and transformable cosmic salon that opens up a journey that is both poetic and historical.
A history that starts in a pavilion in Montreuil-sous-Bois, redesigned in 1989 by Véronique Bourgoin and Juli Susin as a place conducive to collaborations, a space station lost in the middle of nowhere but close to everything.

Véronique Bourgoin has made her living room – her salon – mobile and with each installation recreates a new space in trompe l’oeil, mirroring the “salon” as a place for collaborations and exchanges. Black and white wallpaper creates a nostalgic decor replete with unusual objects – VHS cassettes, vinyls, books and curiosities – to compose a dreamlike reflection on the transformation of the space of communication.
