Grand Magasin is a project developed through conversations between Nat Breitenstein and Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski at French Riviera where for two weeks in December, French Riviera will have its gallery space transformed into a store taking full advantage of its original shop front architecture. The project looks at and is promoting ‘objects’ for sale that are not necessarily artworks but that have been made by fine artists alongside other objects for sale made by designers and other types of ‘makers’. It is not a study of difference but rather of divergence. Overall the point of interest is the maker’s craft, transference of skills, definition and profitability. Everything in the ‘store’ is for sale and could be either a unique one-off piece or part of an edition from ceramic pots, furniture, wallpaper, prints, lamps, a cookbook, food, houseplants, bird’s nests, music, clothing, textiles, lingerie, perfume, etc. There are no defined limits as such and there may be pieces included that are artworks but that seem other than that, i.e. have a use value and/or functionality about them, or that tip their hat in that direction as well as having works by designers and makers with some that sit within or close to fine art. Formulating, installing and running the ‘store’ will be a fluid process that develops, changes and grows as it goes along. All in all it is an experimental project that leans towards playfulness but still retains theoretical and political undertones to do with production and value. The project runs for two weeks, the store opens on Sunday 1st December with events throughout. See website during the exhibition for further details.
