Since the gallery is meant to last no more than three years, the old space is not renovated but simply screened: expanded-metal walls make a universal hanging system – no need for holes in the walls, the walls are all holes.
Since the gallery is part of the art-dealer’s home, it wraps itself up in itself: walls twist into ceilings, and vice versa -- fluorescent lights travel from wall across ceiling to opposite wall -- the plasterboard wall, that separates gallery from children’s playroom, twists at the top to make a projection screen inside the gallery.
The gallery is built & un-built & re-built from show to show: wall-panels pivot into sculpture & video stands, seats in the middle of art – they pivot down from the ceiling to make auxiliary walls.
The expanded-metal turns the corner & rises upstairs. Panels fold down to make bookshelves for the office; a steel wall splits & warps into shelves & desk & seats for dealer and clients.
