Curtains made of event fabric CS VOILE

Tracing the obvious and the hidden meaning in James Tissot's works was part of the exhibition concept for the large retrospective at the Musée d'Orsay Paris. In the exhibition space, unostentatious CS VOILE curtains by Gerriets surround expressive exhibits full of clear and bright colours. Alongside with the lighting concept, this contrast sets a focus on selected works, the ambiguity of which may become apparent to the viewer upon closer observation.
