Espace Claude Berri
Claude Langmann, known as Claude Berri, French director, screenwriter, producer and actor; he is nicknamed "the last mogul" or "the godfather of French cinema" ; he is considered one of the great directors (Tchao pantin, Jean de Florette/ Manon des sources, Je vous aime) and film producers (L'Ours, Bienvenu chez les Ch'tis...). He was also president of La Cinémathèque française from 2003 to 2007.
Claude Berri was also an avid lover of modern and contemporary art, to which he dedicated the Espace Claude Berri in Paris ...
The intervention is sober. The spirit of the project invites a temporal ambiguity between traces of the industrial and contemporary components and between what has always been there and what has been added today.
It is a welcoming space for all kinds of works. The glazed atrium can be darkened by an enormous iron curtain. The materials are noble and crafted industrially. The place exudes a certain inertia. The thicknesses are palpable, the light is soft. The layout encourages modularity. The massive, thick walls are moveable and can be adapted to each exhibition.
