the setting

The central space has very high ceilings, which somewhat dwarfs a visitor, but is similar to an entrance of a chapel. The floors are tiled and this tiling continues half-way up the walls. (There must have been water pouring through this space at one point.) Holes and missing tiles are throughout as well as random slabs of cement where (I suppose) machines and tables were arranged. The day I visited the space, it was particularly cold, gray and poorly lit.

We can play with this setting. Smell, sound, color, temperature, should all be considered. I am emailing the organizers/curators of the space about the history and why/how it became a contemporary art space and also to introduce them to our work.
