Estelle Chaigne’s participatory performance workshop pays homage to spirit photography practices of the early 20th century, recreating the circumstances that make it possible to reveal, more or less mysteriously, the sprits of the deceased. Chaigne invites participants to sit in her séance room, a process she documents with a large format view camera, using direct positive photo paper. Participants then develop their photographs in the darkroom, discovering evidence of the apparitions they just recently shared space with. They will leave with a basic knowledge of analog film processing and a personal memento of this strange encounter.
