Three places, three moments of a night with Geneva’s jeunesse dorée.


Virgil Vernier took advantage of a workshop with students at HEAD to continue his work as an amused moralist and observer of passions through an encounter with Geneva’s jeunesse dorée. Nightclub debates, girls from the East and contemporary totems paint a portrait of luxury and vanity that echoes the progress of a decidedly unique body of work, holding up a mirror to a Switzerland torn between yesterday’s Protestantism and today’s ostentation.
