un certain goût pour l'Ailleurs
Visual communication and graphics of the exhibition.
This exhibition, dedicated to Anger’s great collectors’ taste for exoticism in the 19th century, presented over 250 items and sets through very diverse media (ceramics, paintings, graphic arts, artistic items, furniture, handiwork, sculptures, etc.), coming from the entire world and from different eras.
The poster evokes this heteroclite aspect of the exhibition. It is composed of continent-like shapes that let glimpse at exposed artwork, claiming the idea of being hooked through the use of shadows. The drawn lettering of the title picks up titling wooden characters from the 19th century. The background of the poster is a direct ink, with a slightly iridescent grey-blue tint, in order to give back matter to this purposely floating composition.
For the exhibition, the scenographic choice has been to propose an exploration by geographical origin, and to insist on the accumulation. The graphics insist on the fantasy of each culture that is being explored (Italy, Greece, Egypt, Middle-East, Far-East, Americas) by taking inspiration from neo-antique, neo-classical or neo-egyptian styles, playing with kitsch. Very detailed wallpapers give rhythm the different parts, giving them homogeneity, and giving a context to artwork.
