Stories about Man and Power in 10 Objects
The Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation, Riga
Design studio H2E, Riga
This temporary exhibition revealed the relationships between people and authority in the historically significant context of the 20th century. The main storytellers were ten authentic objects connected with specific people and stories. The rooms were merged with ten storylines, ten main objects and the supporting artefacts to create one unified storyline within the exhibition. The common basis of ten neutral and dark spaces gave way to a variety of scenographic elements – light, video, audio and projections – all reconstructing the history. The emotional stories behind the objects were the main inspiration during the design process.
