Sophie Bélair Clément 'Daylight: The Hermitage State Museum'(December 2010)
Sophie Bélair Clément creates installations and performances that are concerned with museum strategies for reconstruction, presentation and documentation. In her Centrum work, 'Daylight: The Hermitage State Museum' she documented the different height of the 2200 curtains that are pulled up and down every day by the gallery guards at the state museum on St. Petersburg, Russia. The slide projected collage was screened on Centrum’s window between dusk and late evening.
