A former tailoring
in the Parisien district Belleville was changed into a gallery space.
Three U-shaped walls, made of gipsum blocks and courtain fabric,
form a good structured space which works as a neutral background
for the presentation of artworks. Ceilings, walls and floors have
not been refurbished.
The new stone walls define the exhibition space, while the workspace
of the gallerist is enclosed by courtains. The courtains hide storage
shelfs and protect them during conversion phases against dust. In
front of the windows the fabric works as a shading.
The conversion was realized with a limited budget. All used materials
are of simple and standardized origin. Only the office desk and
presentation shelf of the gallerist was custom-made by a carpenter.
