Anja Engelke (*1983) has fulfilled a dream with her work Room 125: the dream of inhabiting a picture, or, more precisely, of moving into a photograph and making changes to its content. As its starting point, Engelke’s unusual photography project used the artwork Room 125 by the American artist Stephen Shore. In 1973 he traveled through the United States to document his everyday experiences and his homeland in photographs. The picture is of the photographer’s hotel room, framed to show only his legs and feet on the bed. Forty-five years later, Engelke reconstructed the photo in her own home and documented her life inside the photo of Room 125, creating a literal tableau vivant.
