My New Space / Upcoming Show
That's how the garage space looked when I arrived here in late July. There were 4 shelves and no panels on the only wall I could use. Now the shelves are regrouped in the middle of the garage, like an island, I am waiting for the owner to come get them. It may never happen and that's OK.
I insulated the wall I wanted to use, even if the rest of the room is not insulated. But the sun heats directly that wall on the outside, so I figured it could help a little.
Then a very efficient handy man installed some drywall in 2 hours.
I painted the wall white even if I know it will not stay like that for very long, but the soft reflection of the light on the white is really nice.
That's why I painted my card boxes white too, it does help the light to reflect in the room.
It did not take much time to figure out what I wanted and to make the few changes I needed to feel comfortable with the space. Since then, I am working on the new series for the next exhibition at Project X in December (which I started in San Diego, before moving), "Defragmentation, rearranging bits and pieces of memory". I will have the pleasure to come to San Diego for a week to install the show and hopefully to see all my friends!
I am very excited about the project and I am working on it intensely.
