Bureau Doove’s first major exhibition in France, ENSEMBLE, was a selection of the work of graduates from four schools for art, architecture and design in Normandy: ésam Caen, ESADHaR Le Havre/Rouen and École nationale supérieure d’atchitecture de Normandie. It was the first time that the schools presented their graduates together.
Edith Doove was invited to make a selection and present this in the majestic abbatial church of Saint-Ouen. She developed a specific scenography with a large 25 meter long plinth at the heart of the exhibition to showcase maquettes by the architecture graduates. Around this symbolic ‘table’ works of about 50 graduates are shown on and around the exhibition walls. For the repainting of these walls in a stone colour that moves away from the classic white box Doove succeeded in obtaining a sponsorship by Sikkens France.
