Luna Park, 2006

An abandoned amusement park – mistakenly built on the cold and dark slopes of the Basque Mountains – became a set for various artists to work with in the early 2000’s.
Although there was no lack of spectacular scenes, like a display of The Seven Dwarfs half-eaten away by local wildlife, I was more attracted by the forensics of the former offices. The scattered paperwork can hardly be called an archive, although traces of a filing system are still present.
