Springing to life in a new building next to a former agricultural complex in the countryside outside the village of Saint-Langis-lès-Mortagne, Normandy, the space is constructing a new workshop outpost outside of Paris for the artist.

“At every moment of the day, Jean-Luc changes activity: from 6 to 8 he draws, from 9 he makes models, etc. Its activity is a kind of choreography, from one moment to the next, to the next. My aim was therefore to create a space that would allow him to adapt his trajectories according to his needs. – Didier Fiuza Faustino

To conceptualize this project, a precise and minimal language was developed around the gesture, the work and the creation to best meet the needs of the artist: in his different modes of production, in the use of his tools, in the scale of both the hand and the machine. More intimate spaces, conducive to reflection and rest, have also been created, all linked to different modes of treatment of light (natural and artificial) and to perspectives taken in space. At night, the structure and its open windows are almost reminiscent of a collection of solar panels, alluding to its outward look and environmental approach to the interior.

From the outside, the building is made up of a succession of identical volumes distributed in constant shift over five parallel bays 4m wide. Each of these volumes has a translucent sloping façade facing north; a north-south sloping roof ending in an opaque glazed wall in continuity with the roof. Inside, the whole delimits a free space of 265 m² on the ground under 8m height at the ridge, cut in its center by an east-west fault where the entrance and the access to a mezzanine of 100 m² are located. .

The walls and roofs are made up of prefabricated wooden frame boxes fixed to a reinforced concrete slab and covered with a waterproof black rubber membrane. This uniform matte black skin transforms the building into a shadow, making it disappear into its environment like a building you don’t want to see; only used. Structure is reduced to the bare essentials – in this case, referring to an ultimate site for creative practice.

The pavilion lighting is designed specifically for the workshop by Fiúza Faustino, and the lamps will appear as a scenographic element in EXIST/RESIST; the first institutional exhibition tracing the three decades of practice of the artist-architect, which will open in autumn 2022 at the MAAT in Lisbon.
