In Scarlett's Place, Ernst Looking At Himself in Hong Kong

Color photograph, plexi-glass, wood, 12 x 170 x 140cm, 1997


Scarlett is a French friend living in Hong Kong. Here is the guestroom in her apartment. Many relatives and friends from Europe stay here for a short while. I was imagining: it would be perfect for those rushing visitors to Hong Kong if there could be a piece of magic furniture helping them to create their own memory of a virtual travel to some places without having been there.
