I mimicked a 1:1 size replacement to exchange the poster in the MOMUSE(Molenbeek History Museum), only 15 minutes from the AGOSSETSITE.
This green St.Michel advertising poster drew my attention during the beginning of the Molenbeek research. The historian and Momuse director Sven Steffens collected this giant original poster from the Paris market.
"Is it possible to loan this fantastic and valuable poster to show it inside the GOSSETSITE where this cigarette was produced? In order to show their(St.Michel cigarettes) past glories into the heritage."
"Yes, I would like to loan it to you and show it to the former cigarette factory in person, but our display wall will be empty. We need to consider this local museum system in Brussels because we have limited collections of this show, and we need to keep the balance from this stable exhibition."
After a few minutes of silence, we made an affordable deal, using my artistic skill to mimic a 'replacement' to exchange the poster in the Molenbeek Museum.
