The transformation of No. 153 | 153号的演变
It’s six days out from the opening of The Floating Eye and the team in Shanghai have all hands on (concrete) deck installing the show. The exhibition space at No. 153 Nanjing Dong Lu is a renovator’s delight – over 700 square metres of untouched Art Deco interiors.
When they’re not busy breaking through walls, the team have been visiting Shanghai’s building materials markets in search of install equipment. Need some piping? This store has you covered.
Shanghai does Art Deco conversions well. This former abattoir (built in 1933) is now a creative and retail hub, not to mention a popular site for wedding photography.
Back in Sydney, 4A’s current exhibition What the Birds Knew has already doubled as a photo studio for one happy couple. Betting is now open for The Floating Eye‘s wedding photo tally. Keep in mind the Biennale is expected to attract around 8 million visitors!
