The apartment is one of a series of images realised in the home of the French writer Andre Pieyre de Mandiargues. After the death of the author and his wife, Sylvie, the apartment was left intact. The image represents the original traces left on the wall by paintings hung there. These photos, printed in medium and large format, were taken during the four years in which Francesco Patriarca lived in the apartment. He also wrote a book on this experiment entitled The apartment by F. Patriarca, Les Editions Filigranes, Paris, 2004.
