Curtains made from event fabric CS VOILE

Tracing the obvious and hidden meaning in the works of James Tissot was part of the exhibition concept for the major retrospective at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Discreet CS VOILE curtains by Gerriets surround individual, expressive exhibits full of clear, bright colours. Together with the play of light, this contrast creates a targeted staging of the works, the ambiguity of which may only be revealed to the viewer on closer inspection.
