Hotel Oloffson is a performance taking place in a hotel room. The guests-exclusively collectors, curators critics are invited to an one-on-one encounter with the artist.

Although I had never seen him before, when I saw this extraordinary being of light and magnetism I could only exclaim, "Soyez le bienvenu; comme vous êtes charmant!" [...]
Lying here on my bed at the Negresco, I try to analyse this thing that they call memory." [in "My Life", by Isadora Duncan]
