Chantal Crousel – La Douane Gallery
Since its creation in 1980, Galerie Chantal Crousel has promoted artists conscious of and demanding vis-a-vis their time. After 30 years of activity and promotion of the French and international art scene, Chantal Crousel and Niklas Svennung have decided to open a second exhibition space.
This new space is located on the third floor of an industrial building formerly occupied by the French customs, in the heart of Paris, behind the Marais and the place de la République and around the corner from the Canal St. Martin.
The venue operates in a manner complementary to the main space on Rue Charlot, but with different architectural and temporal specificities. This allows us a greater adaptability to the artists’ shifting practices, and a scale more suitable for projects we produce outside the usual exhibition time (biennials, fairs, museum exhibitions). It represents an indispensable tool to adapt to our constantly changing environment.
Monographic exhibitions and specific invitations give the artists and visitors the ability to capture the ever more intense ties, affinities, and relationships that we build outside the gallery space (with curators, museums, critics, artists, colleague gallerists).
Here, the works occupy the space in order to stand out in a different light, especially through the use of depth of field, allowing many actions to take place at the same time.
