This book documents French conceptual installation artist Loris Gréaud’s (born 1979) transformation of Max Hetzler’s galleries in Paris and Berlin into otherworldly landscapes featuring spores hanging from the ceiling, tree sculptures with flailing limbs and waste collected from locations in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film Stalker.

In early 2008, the influential and multifaceted young French artist Loris Gréaud debuted Cellar Door at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, taking over the entire museum with scored events that included paintball performances and fireworks. This volume presents the project and its scores, thus serving as the libretto for a new art-operatic genre.
