We believe that exhibition design should be neutral background for the artworks and in the same time it should create comfortable environment for viewers. Following these principles we created a scenery for Aleksander Gierymski Exhibition for National Museum in Warsaw. It was presented from March 20 to August 10, 2014.
The exhibition entitled „ALEKSANDER GIERYMSKI 1850-1901” shows almost everything what remained after artist – around 120 paintings and oil sketches, 70 drawings, almost 110 woodcuts and many photographs. Enlarging exposition space to accommodate that amount of artworks was the main factor which shaped the final form.
Key element of our project is additional wavy, white form, placed in building’s existing interior, which goes through every room in the gallery. It creates 15 connected octagonal spaces. This is how we gained an additional surface on the walls that helped us to highlight the most important artworks of the exhibition. It also gives an opportunity to involve the visitors and drag their attention from one room to another.
We used only three colours: ceiling and floors are black, walls under the paintings are white and grey in the drawings area. This sets a neutral background for all of the artworks.
The flooring design was inspired by works of Aleksader Gierymski. He was using smooth black shadows, combined with thick layers of light. We used the same sequence of contrasts by using black carpets with long bristles and smooth black lino in some spaces.
One last thing to mention is furniture. We designed minimalistic black rhomboid blocks which can be used as seats or the artwork movable displays.
