INTERVIEW WITH JACQUELINE FRYDMAN, DIRECTOR OF THE EXPOSITION SPACE PASSAGE DE RETZ

 

9 rue Charlot, in the district of les Marais, the heart of Paris. A metallic sculpture, smooth, shaped like an adamantine meteorite, guards over the entrance of Passage du Retz, a temporary exposition space wanted by Jacqueline Frydman. The work of Israeli artist and designer Arik Levy welcomes us into the courtyard with a vaguely Kubrick-esque air, like an alien monolith that for some mysterious reason guards the history of the place and its transformations.

The inscription on the arch of the entrance reads “Hotel de Retz 1613″. Before hosting an exposition space and different creative agencies, it was a building that existed through 400 years of history and Parisian production. A private residence of nobility in the 17th and 18th centuries, then the laboratory-home of sculptor and furniture maker Jean-Francoise Deninger, Hotel de Retz was also a toy factory run by engineer I. B. Frydman.
