The Office started with an offer made by the art dealing company ACL Partners to set up an exhibition on the occasion of the Picasso Museum opening in Paris in front of their office. Over the course of few weeks we developed ideas with 29 artists that resulted in more than forty artworks that played either with the office’s original setting or the dealer’s day-to-day life. Blondie and Chelsea, the art dealer’s dogs have been put in charge by Puppies Puppies to film the opening. The trophy piece that is normally placed above the art dealer’s shoulders in the office has been exchanged with Columbian Sperm donor, a rare 1999 signed poster of Lance Armstrong sent by Michael Mazurek. The huge Cindy Sherman’s photography that hangs in the living room has been used by the AIRBNB survival kit as a bed painting decoration. Macbook pro scent diffuser realized by Greatest Hits shares its space with Ron Arad’s uncomfortable aluminium chair and Adam Cruces customized grey and white M&M’s. The toilet has been transformed by Cédric Fargues into a character inspired by the 90’s B movie Look Who’s Talking Too, while the storage has been occupied by Matthew Linde’s Centre for Style. In the last room Max Hooper Schneider’s aquarium functions as an anti- stress device on the art dealer’s desk.
