The Door to Le Chantier

THE DOOR TO LE CHANTIER: Even before renovation work began in November 2011, the building was threatening to collapse. Everything had to be redone from top to bottom. Though the old door to the building was not much to look at, it was decided the door would remain in place. However that decision didn’t take into account the effect of the wind, the rain and the cold as well as the lack of natural lighting! It became obvious that the site would be poorly served by such an unsuitable entrance. It was clear a new watertight door would have to be put in which would also allow natural light to shine through. However, the necessary funds were lacking... That was the start of the project THE DOOR TO LE CHANTIER, through Kisskiss Bankbank, which gathered together more than a hundred donors. This door has become the symbol of the moving spirit behind Le Chantier. By way of thanking the various artists who had donated towards the new door, the SPONSORS’ EXHIBITION presents the works of 24 artist sponsors.
