La Grande Galerie

Danica Dakic

In the La Grande Galerie series (2004), pictures from the Louvre become the subject of a restaging. The typical clichés associated with ”gypsies“ found in Georges de La Tour’s The Cheat (1625) and Nicolas Régnier’s The Fortune Teller and Hubert Robert’s Vue imaginaire de la Grande Galerie du Louvre en ruines (1796) is inserted into the negation of a bucolic landscape with Romanian war refugees.
