Chambre de Bonne

An exhibition of détourned reproductions of works by Paola Alborghetti, Eckehard Fuchs, Michiko Nakatani and Patricia Smith, along with objects from the château

Assembled by Patricia Smith at Château Beaurepaire, Loudun, France

Part of Exhibition for One, a worldwide collaborative project by Eckehard Fuchs

As a way of collaborating remotely while under quarantine, a group of international artists uploaded images of their work to be freely used by each other in any way they chose to create an exhibition. I selected and printed images from several artists and collected objects from around the château that I felt could communicate with the artworks––creating fusions, tensions and conversations. A chambre de bonne, or maid’s room, in the attic was the setting for the exhibition.
