Presenting herself as a major commercially successful international artist, Alexandra do Carmo initiates a path through Brooklyn, New York, pretending to rent an art studio, with the company of a false assistant in town.

On each occasion, with a new real estate agent, she is toured through different old manufacturing buildings in the process of conversion to artist studios, collecting video images with the excuse of producing a documentary of her “arrival” in New York for a supposed "major museum exhibition".

She is creating a social and political memory of spaces that are being transformed-- confronting them with a past existence in terms of the activities once present or with the very updating and social presentation of the space in order to accommodate artistic activities.
