In conjunction with the launch of the publication, NO FEAR OF GLASS, Side Gallery released a short film of the making of the exhibition. The film features the exhibition’s designer, Sabine Marcelis, who talks us through the concept and process’ leading the to the creation of the emblematic exhibition, held at the Barcelona Pavilion in December 2019. Marcelis explains how through the use of material and production experimentation, each of her five original works create surprising applications, perfect in form, that translate the materiality and ideology of the Pavilion.
Side Gallery and Sabine Marcelis in collaboration with the Fundació Mies van der Rohe held the exhibition “No Fear of Glass” in December 2019. The site-specific intervention took the title from ‘Fear of glass’, the book about the Barcelona Pavilion by Josep Quetglas, the proposal aimed to explore the contrast between the request made to Mies van der Rohe to “not use too much glass” with the creative proposal of Sabine Marcelis herself, where glass was the key element of the exhibition, pushing the material’s limits to the end.
