4 RUE MORET
Glassbox in 2011 has set itself the goal of finding a new exhibition space to host its programming. Thanks to the support of its partners and in particular the team of the 11th arrondissement town hall, a lease has been signed for a 50m² space at 4 rue Moret.
In order to offer a maximum of free space and legibility during the exhibitions, we have invited a group of architects and artists : Freaks Architecture (with Guillaume Aubry, Cyril Gauthier, Yves Pasquet) to think about the layout of the new space on rue Moret. After several months of work, the gallery space was designed in a refined and functional rendering, offering several possible space configurations, notably thanks to the creation of a pivoting picture rail. This work introduces modularity and can present for the artists several configurations of exhibition space, while creating a quick separation of spaces for a workstation, or the projection of a video work.
Main characteristics of the space :
– Asphalt on the ground, identical to that of Moret Street
– A movable partition allows the gallery to be cut into four different formats.
– The showcase opens fully to the street.
Conceived by the FREAKS Freearchitects, the art space questions the limits between the public and private spheres.
