4 choices in Paris Centre Pompidou #3 : Ron Arad, No Discipline

This new alternative in Centre Pompidou is located in the South part of the museum  – on the right side entering the building.  South gallery is showing a monographic exhibition of architect and designer Ron Arad.

The exhibition’s title might have two meanings,  the one relating to no order, and the other relating to the concept of mixing all types of work and all fields of experiment.

Ron Arad himself has designed the setting and the presentation of over two hundred pieces he has created, from the eighties to scale models of future buildings.

From the entrance, you are immersed in a colorful dreamy universe filled with round forms.

And if you look closer, you get in a single piece the same sense of colorful merry-go-round.

Mirrors and ground projections intensify this feeling.

The exhibition’s room have glass doors opening to the outside, and one charm is also that Ron Arad‘s world fits perfectly with the Museum’s surroundings and architecture.

And as the rooms are located on the groundfloor, after leaving, it’s quite facinating to look at parts of the exhibition through the windows, with the outside reflected on the glass.
