Description

“It is not necessary to create a world, but the possibility of a world.” This line by Jean-Luc Godard provides the motto for this intervention that redefined the configuration of the apartment: the former private area, made up of three bedrooms, gave way to one large living space; the reception areas, a living room and a study, were used to create two bedrooms and a closet. This reorganisation saw the removal of walls and the insertion of a new one that now separates the bedrooms: each of these interventions is marked in the space by formal elements and references that seek to respond to the question: how to unite what was once separate or divide what was always one?
