Changing an apartment into an art gallery

The pandemic causes stagnation in many areas of life, including the art world. Tired of the pandemic apathy, New York architect Olivier Garcé together with his friend - designer and sculptor Ian Felton decided to break boredom and turn his own apartment into an art gallery. He invited friends and acquaintances to cooperate.

The space was supposed to bring what designers are looking for in bustling New York: creative inspiration, cooperation, new discoveries. Olivier Garcé lives with his partner Clio, also an architect, in a light-flooded, atmospheric apartment in a townhouse in the West Village, which has become the backdrop for art.

The project was attended by: Felton, Garcé, Minjae Kim, Green River Projects, R and Company, Wayne Payte, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Atelier Jouffre, Gabriella Picone and Sharktooth.

Olivier Garcé also arranged the works of his collection, combining contemporary art by authors such as Claire Tabouret, Tadashi Kawamata, Imi Knoebel, Klara Kristalova with ceramics and vintage furniture (Paavo Tynell, Kaare Klint).

Felton spent most of his time during the pandemic on a farm in upstate New York, where he regularly carved wood outdoors. In his works, he wanted to combine this organic matter with glazed volcanic stone.

Kim, the lead designer at the Giancarlo Valle studio, has created works that combine carved wood finished in heavy black lacquer with fiberglass fabric and resin.

Green River Project LLC provided one of its iconic veneer stools, topped with tactfully arranged hay and a bamboo folding screen. R and Company has chosen a unique floor lamp from an unknown creator, an Italian brand from the 70's.
