The 4-story building, 14 meters high, 53 meters long, 11 meters wide, is home to 128 rooms – thus the name. A derelict structure reserved for fulsome installations all individually painted by an international roster of artists invited in residency to paint by the co-founders Gilles and Sylvie.
Paid tours are
available, artists are invited, and some programming happens on the grounds
just to keep the conditions of the property cared for. Unlike many “artist
takeover” buildings, none of these are slotted for destruction any time soon,
so the artists are going to continue to explore their ideas for the foreseeable
future and you are welcome to check-in anytime.
Here are some detail
shots from a selection of rooms from BSA contributor Lluis Olive Bulbena.
