Octave Cowbell is a historic and emblematic exhibition space in the Grand Est region of France.

Since 2004, the gallery's mission has been to promote young contemporary art in all its forms.

Located at 5 rue des Parmentiers in Metz, Octave Cowbell is an apartment open to visitors. You enter through the window, via a small staircase set into the street. Inside, 25 square meters of white, neon-lit space with a fireplace.

In 2018, photographer and visual artist Vanessa Gandar takes over the artistic direction of "la galerie où l'on entre par la fenêtre".

Her curatorial project aims to reflect on nature, man's relationship with the environment, the proximity of territories, and the contemplation of the cosmos, while favoring field experiences.

The artists invited to participate all question the origins of things and forms, materials and their future, and man's relationship with nature. In the form of meticulous collections, photographs, drawings or installations, these exhibitions are variations on the question of landscape, whether natural or artificial, telluric or atmospheric, fragile or constrained.
