SALON ROUGE Publication by Patrick Morarescu & Heinrich Obst

V.U. Bureau Gruzemayer / Antwerpen

One might consider the Salon Rouge as a small temporary enclave, an eddy of consideration in which the projected & photographically captured persona comes to the fore… the one between the public face and the mirror gaze, doubtful and self-conscious, but caught in an unguarded moment while outside the city is locked down in a red alert and the world raves on.


A classic studio-setup without the intimidating high-tech environment, closing in on that humorous “punktum” that was the original point of departure.

A suite of portraits taken at Buktapaktop in Brussels as part of a performance-installation “Zut! Mon Humour” conceived by Patrick Morarescu and Heinrich Obst in November 2015.
