Schaurig Schön – Ungeheuerliches in der Kunst

Vienna 2011

Client: Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna

This exhibition was dedicated to hybrid beings, demons and other mythical creatures. The incredible success of modern myths such as Harry Potter or The Lord of the Rings demonstrates how relevant and ubiquitous these beings still are today. Using selected objects from the collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, this exhibition traced the stories and the change in meaning that many of the mythical figures have undergone over the millennia. For this project we took over, among other things, the construction of the display cases and the object lighting.
