Client: Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem
Project: Spatial design for temporary exhibition
Centre piece of the exhibition on the Flemish Baroque painter Jacob Jordaens is the reconstruction of his show room which used to be in his house in Antwerp. For the first time the nine ceiling paintings are shown in Holland in a reconstruction with a temporary twist: Jordaens wanted to overwhelm his clients with a richly decorated room, we added the mirrorfloor for an immersive experience. The mirrorfloor creates a fascinating new perspective on the ceiling paintings and activates visitors immediately to engage with the room and the artworks.
Paintings on loan from Phoebus Foundation, Antwerp
