From joots to jinner tables, Harry Nuriev has transformed a Parisian gallery into a denim-clad dwelling Earlier this year, Julia Fox recounted her experience of being trapped inside a mouse-infested apartment by a selfish child. In a now-viral TikTok, the actor walked viewers through her cluttered, bless-this-mess home where corners are piled high with shoe boxes and plant pots bear no signs of life. Fox – a sort of 21st-century Rapunzel – is more than happy to be living alongside kindly rodents that “come out and clean up the crumbs that [her] son drops on the floor,” but where is she transported to when she closes her eyes and sees beyond the confines of her Brooklyn HQ? Perhaps a derelict rooftop where she can preach fire and brimstone sermons? Or an arcadian hinterland where she can wander through wooded groves in fig leaves and centaurian costumes? Or perhaps it’s Harry Nuriev’s most recent exhibition space, where every surface is covered in distressed denim – much like Fox’s own wardrobe. “I’ve been interested in how our personal style extends into the spaces we inhabit,” Nuriev says. “Why don’t we dress our spaces the same way we dress our bodies?” Based on that idea, the artist has transformed the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris into a “denim-clad dwelling” where conversation pits, dressing tables, dining tables, office chairs, and workout benches have been wrapped in weathered scraps of durable indigo.
