Misplaced objects

Lausanne, Béthusy secondary school, installation

In the surroundings of the Béthusy secondary school in Lausanne, about 30 objects that could have been lost by the site’s users (a scooter, a bicycle, a trumpet, a microscope, marbles) are set in the ground.

These familiar objects intriguingly emerge from the ground like archeological evidence. Hardly recognizable at first glance, they appear like strange remnants of which one can guess the outline, the function, and imagine the history.
