WonderLab - Exhibition in Tokyo

We imagined this exhibition as a journey between the lights and shadows with  heightened sense of materiality. It is an exhibition where one’s senses are constantly guided and aroused. It is the desire of touching, of discovering surfaces, surprising materialities, that guide one with awe, through the various rooms of the National Museum of Tokyo.

The envelop is the support. The envelop of each room that stops being a wall to become a skin. A skin that moves, reflects, engage. A conceptual thread that links the various and varying spaces, like many shades of the same color. The exhibition transports the visitor through a tactile journey. A visually and bodily tactile experience.

Each room is a specific palpable world. A world: that of the artwork, which required the many movements of the craftsman or craftswoman hands. We imagined a gown of varying textures enveloping the walls of each room. All the rooms constituting together connected worlds. The public becoming the player of the visit, getting directly in touch with the different materials that surround him: the floor, the walls become both one envelop. A total immersion with the haptic universe of the master artists. Each object is sublimated in a world that portrays it, while the whole scenography draws a continuity through the simple gesture of envelopping.

The research of the materials used to envelop the spaces follow the creative philosophy of each artist, their works, personality, the materials they touched, allowing the public to understand through their senses the universe of the makers – hence beyond a didactic approach.

Light. Dark light. Thin light. Point light. Diffused light. Constellation of lights. Atmospheric, Light accentuate the crafts-works, shed the magic on the envelopping textures. Jean Girel transport us in his endless constellation, blurring the edges of the room. A circular mouvement walks us through the potter’s wheel…
