2015, BOZAR, Brussels - Belgium
Scenography & Production Management for BOZAR
The exhibition, FACES THEN - Renaissance Portraits from the Low Countries, has the individual in the center and pulls the viewer to take in the detail rather then to breeze by.
The scenography is based on the primary colors of the Renaissance - red, blue and yellow.
The three colors contrast innately, divide the rooms and ensure movement is created
through the clear path of repetition.
The brown panels and grids are subtle references to the typical shutters of mostly wood-made interiors of the Renaissance from the Low Countries. They enhance the viewers attention to the attributes in the portraits to subtly tell something about the personality of the portrayed, the specific poses, and the realism versus idealization.
