Isabelle Pauwels
Isabelle Pauwels
April 7 — May 5, 2001

Pauwels’ work will intervene in the gallery through the construction of a drop ceiling throughout the complete interior of the Or Gallery space.

Pauwels’ ceiling is standard in every respect; save that it is hung below the lighting track, just above the entrance to the gallery. As a result, the ceiling re-defines our expectations of the gallery’s architecture and how the Or’s space functions. The only illumination in the gallery comes from the light leaking between the cracks of the ceiling tiles, which can be seen in the corners of the room, and along the juncture of the walls and the floors. These light leaks suggest the possibility of another space, or even another room, above the tiles. This space is visible from the street-level windows; and from this perspective one sees what appears to be a fully lit service bay.
