ONE ENTRANCE / TWO EXITS (2018)
ONE ENTRANCE / TWO EXITS1 consists at creating a second entrance, subsequently a second exit2 into an institution by using the fire escape door of that latter.
The official entrance is staying fully operational while the new one is a copy of the main entrance, at the difference that no employees are working there.
Those latters are still at the official entrance and are asked to charge the visitors at the end of their visit. There is no act to be performed. The employees are doing what they usually do. They are in the role of their work, not in another role.

2 Sneaking out means to exit in a quiet, sneaky, inconspicuous,
or furtive manner. Sneaking out without paying is considered for some as art or sport. I do not encourage you to do it, but I cannot stop you doing it.
