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.
a ring of round armchairs in front of videos of architectural realizations.
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.
Same tone and shapes in this stairway to dreams
and in this lamp hanging from the ceiling.
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.
Ron Arad, No Discipline, up to March 12, everyday except Tuesday from 11 AM to 9 PM, up to 11 PM on Thursday. Centre Pompidou, South Gallery, level 1. Entrance ticket € 12 opens for one day the gate of the permanent collection and all temporary exhibitions.
