Au Musée d’Orsay
Photograph, 120 x 85 cm/47 x 33 inches
Photo by Åsa Pröjts

The photo is taken in 2006 at Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
Between 2005-2006, the clothing style of Jane Avril and bohemian women of the 1890s was my preferred everyday wear. 

I’m standing in front of the Toulouse-Lautrec painting ”Jane Avril Dancing.” The photo shows how long the project has been ongoing, as well as shows how several layers of time interact and collide – the painting from the 1890s together with me who is wearing the style of that era, photographed in 2006 with an analogue camera – the standard photo method of that time.
