“This project took place in buildings in Barcelona’s Barrio Chino district and Gennevilliers [outside Paris], just before they were demolished. Still furnished, these apartments seem to have been the backdrop to some dramatic event, the scene of a crime, whose witnesses must have fled in a hurry. Here, a panoramic view of Manhattan forms the wallpaper. Now in tatters, the visual subterfuge is revealed,” wrote Mathieu Pernot in L’Etat des lieux, 779/SFP, 2004.
