Hide & Seek

Photographer Laurence Aëgerter blends photography and painting, creating new compositions where the spectator seems to become one with the painted scene.
When Laurence Aëgerter places a spectator or object between us and the painting, 
she is violating this idealised museum experience. Reality jumps in, gets in the way. Her intervention reminds one of the museum visitor who giddy and dizzy attacks the canvas, an aggressive and iconoclastic act. But instead of reality swallowing up the painting, the reverse happens here: connected through the photograph a new artwork is formed.
