“Musée Dom Robert et de la Tapisserie du 20ème siècle” - located in the Abbey-school of Sorèze - is an important cultural and rural Regional center, and it’s the scene chosen to show the tapestries collection property of the En Calcat Abbey. The collection includes 55 tapestries by Dom Robert and 33 tapestries by other XX century artists.
The architectural project includes the restoration of some interior spaces of the Abbey currently disused, and their trasformation into exhibition areas.
The exhibition favors the building configuration and it doesn’t change the original interior spaces perception. The exhibition project follows the concepts of flexibility and reversibility. It’s divide in 5 sections: “Un homme - Un paysage - Une œuvre” (A man – A landscape – A work), “ Naissance d’une vocation artistique et découverte de la tapisserie” (Birth of an artistic vocation and tapestry discovery),” L’œuvre tissé de Dom Robert - Une approche thématique”(The weaved work by Dom Robert – A thematic approach) ,” L’atelier Goubely - Technique de la tapisserie de basse lisse” (The Goubely atelier - Technique of low-warp tapestry), “Aspects de la tapisserie du 20ème siècle” (Elements of the XX century tapestry).
Laboratories and workspaces are placed in independent “boxes” along the exhibition path. Inside these volumes are located: documentation rooms, children’s areas, video installations areas, restoration laboratories and tapestries storage.
The conservation theme and the concept of alternation in exhibition are two central elements in the museological project and they are totally integrated with the interior historical spaces.
To promote understanding the exhibition contents, the project recreates an immersive atmosphere through works, information panels and multimedia installations.
