This installation of Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil is as much about the structure as the empty space within it.  The installation’s title Le Cercle Fermé, or the Closed Circle, offers a clue.  Like a closed circle Feipel and Bechameil offer a finite space that in some ways look familiar, much like a home.  However, the artists playfully alter the structure and its furnishings to throw viewers off balance.  The warped rooms make visitors acutely aware of the space and how they interact with it.  In a way this calls to mind more benign spaces like bedrooms or kitchens, and encourages us to consider how such familiar spaces influence daily life. [via]
