2013 Exhibition Design for Sklena Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic
Project Team: Pavel Hladik (Project Coordination), Michael U. Hensel, Defne Sunguroğlu Hensel
The exhibition design for the OCEAN exhibition at Sklenar Gallery in Prague explores the themes of screens and niches, as well as modulated transparency. This is informed by OCEAN research on historical screenwalls, on the cut-out stucco muqarnas of the music chamber in the Ālī Qāpū Palace in Isfahan, and the material experiments conducted in OCEAN’s Barely project.
The two gallery spaces are organized as a looped circulation by screen-walls and walls with inset niches, as well as by transparent walls with printed and milled images.
