  Sweets in jars, seeds in bags, jars in stores, bags in stores  
Ausstellungsraum Klingental, Basel, 2012
  Exhibition curated by Zayne Armstrong, John Beeson and Manuel Scheiwiller; interventions (guest book, title, floor plan) presented under the name Olivier Castel.
    A series of found images from early 20th century photographers, such as Brassaï, Alfred Stieglitz or André Kertész, are reprinted as negative images and concealed under sheets of carbon paper, within the pages of the guestbook for
a group exhibition. Here the photographic images are exposed a second time over – inscribed with the comments and drawings of visitors. The new photographs will be used as wallpaper for the sequel exhibition.
