World of Feathers

Museum Volkenkunde, Leiden (NL) / Afrika Museum, Berg en Dal (NL) /
Världskultur Museet, Gothenburg (SE) / Etnografiska Museet, Stockholm (SE)

This temporary exhibition takes you on a discovery of feathered objects from all corners of the world. In an immersive and a fascinating world, nature and culture merge into a visual feast. The subject of feathers has all kinds of applications and meanings. Together with the museum, we opted for a thematic layout of the various spaces, with themes such as cultural exchange, feather to impress, feathers that seduce and feathers and power. In this way, the story is introduced to you in gradual stages.

Extravagance

We went over-the-top in every room. Focused theatrical scenography highlights the sub-topics. Through collaboration with light, sound, and media designers we created an experience that tickles all the senses. You enter a completely different world in each space. There is always something more to discover, whether it be another aspect of the subject or a deeper meaning.

The beauty of nature

You can feel our fascination for nature in the exhibition. Isn’t it strange how naked humans actually look compared to birds with their colorful splendor? Trapped in an enormous birdcage, which for once doesn’t encage birds, we look at a paradise of birds. The cage contains ‘storyboxes’: transparent showcases with animations, artifacts, light, text, and illustrations that describe how we use feathers and birds for our own purposes.

The ultimate inspiration

The highlight is a dynamic fashion show designed with rhythmic light and sound effects; an ode to the creativity of contemporary fashion designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler. Film projections move the swaying feathered creations across the catwalk.

A feather-light design

The first ‘World of Feathers’ was designed for the Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden. After that we adapted the exhibition for the Afrika Museum in Berg en Dal in the Netherlands, the Museum of World Cultures in Gothenburg, Sweden, and the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
