“The scenographic concept of the exhibition has a theatrical approach. The physical shapes as well as the celestial bodies on the wall prints are derived from the shapes on the sky disk itself,” creative lead Max Pecher explains. Also the Nebra lettering is custom made to create an entirely coherent form language. Real footage and fantastic elements merge into abstract landscapes on the theatrical backdrops and serve as illustrations of the audio-visual story layer.
“The Drents Museum has been transformed into a heavenly setting….
When you think of an archaeological exhibition, you quickly think of display cases with pots and half-decayed objects in a somewhat dusty decor. Nothing could be further from the truth of the new exhibition of the Drents Museum: upon entering you imagine yourself under an enchanting starry sky. The walls in the dark space show an abstract vast landscape, surmounted by a blue-purple sky full of celestial bodies.”
The exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte in Halle (Germany). Lichtpunt, Iris vormgeving and YellowBloom helped to make this magical object come to live.
