Black Sesame Space
Black Sesame is the exhibition space of Institute for Provocation. It is housed in a converted boiler room of the courtyard at Heizhima hutong 13 where IFP is also located. The main new features of the space is the large entrance door in metal, wood and glass, new windows on the south facade, new openings in the separation wall of the space and flexible lighting frame in the ceiling suspended with a pulley system. In addition, I kept the existing floor tiles, only completed with similar-colour new one and preserved the raw ceiling after removing the chimney and plaster coating. The lighting frame system has both fluorescent light and tracks for spotlights which enables a variation of exhibition setups.
