Gallery

Founded in 2003 : Galerie Jocelyn Wolff opened in October 2003 with a solo show by Clemens von Wedemeyer in a very small space in Belleville in East Paris. Most of represented artists had their first solo show at Galerie Jocelyn Wolff. In March 2006, the gallery moved to a new space in the same neighborhood, rue Julien-Lacroix. 
 
What will not change
is the will to change

Gallery : Following a collaboration started in 2004, the architectral concept of the new gallery space has been designed by Henning von Wedemeyer. Since its original design has been alterated by our exhibitions, you are welcome to browse the architect's website to see what we first imagined. There are clear traces of the original architectural concept by Henning von Wedemeyer : however, we redeveloped the space design with artist and gallery staff Markus Lichti and former staff Albane Duvillier, currently studying architecture. We may need a new project now!
 
Graphic design : From 2005 to 2008 , invitation cards and communication supports were designed by Mathieu Massat and Pierre Guillaume (Bowling club, Paris). This collaboration was reactivated in 2009 and 2011. Since September 08, gallery or invited artists contribute to our anti-corporate design discourse. Late 2011, we decided to test a new and fun graphic design with Bowling Club and to reinvent our collaboration. Are we back to corporate design? Could one escape it?

January 2008 – January 2009, by Oscar Tuazon : American artist Oscar Tuazon was commissioned by Gallery Jocelyn Wolff to redesign its office area. Both the organization of the space and most of the furniture have been changed by the artist, whose practice deals with intervening in and occupying space, recycling available material: a strong contrast merges from the association of a fully functionnalist approach with a expedient relationship towards the use of material. Oscar Tuazon did intervene in the gallery space all year long to add, change, remove parts of what is both an operational office and a sculpture.
