OFF THE WALL: Checking in at Marseille’s ‘Art Gallery with Beds’

Here’s a bed and breakfast sure to make an impression.

But the décor might be more accurately placed in the category of expressionism rather than impressionism.

By any definition, Au Vieux Panier in Marseille, the French Mediterranean city, offers a truly unique lodging experience.

Converted from a Corsican grocery to a hotel in 2010, the hostelry invites the adventurous traveler to “sleep in a work of art,” with each of the six rooms decorated by a different artist.

A recent addition to the “collection” is the startling “Panic Room” creation of the artist otherwise known as Tilt, an inventive, though controversial, French graffiti practitioner.

Panic Room, if nothing else, is a study in contrast—half stark white, contemporary sleeping room, half multicolored, kaleidoscopic hallucination.

The artist and his work are the subject of this interview story on the New York Times website.

More information and visuals of Au Vieux Panier: Art gallery with beds.
 
A video on the Panic Room painting can be viewed on Tilt’s blog site, graffitilt.
