'The Secret Orchid' - 'Camille's Room'
The Secret Orchid - 'Camille's Room', is a small cabinet that hosts an array of intimate things. It's the carrier of an extensive correspondence, it is a reading room as well as a scattered universe of carefully organised comforting objects. It is a soothing space as much as a problematic one, a cushioning that attempts to support an encounter between reader and host, reader and space, reader and text, as well as an open invitation to simply immerse ones' self into a realm in which everything is both personal and multiple.
