Arrangement of the exhibition – Treasures of Peru. Royal tomb in the Castillo de Huarmey

The exhibition presented so far only in Lima, left Peru for the first time. For her arrangement in the State Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw, was responsible our studio. This unique exhibition consists of four rooms. The first one was designed as introduction into the mood of the Peruvian plateau. The next room is a story about the architecture of the queen’s palace.

The common motive of both rooms is the mobile, paper installation on the ceiling, which reflects the character of the sky, finding far-fetched references to Rast’s braided cords.

The spatial installation designed in the fourth room was built entirely of repetitive cuboids. It is a cubistically processed image of a tomb. The room is subordinated to the exhibition of the smallest artefacts found by archaeologists including the queen’s jewelry.
