Visitors of the exhibition can be part of the playful world of Girard and are invited to colour a large Girard print on the interactive wall.
A sunken sitting area, referred to Alexander Girard’s Interior for Miller House (1953-1957) in Colombus, Indiana, USA, for visitors to relax and take up the exhibition.
We created a room within a room, where visitors could step into the brain of Girard. Next to that we used his image culture to install a 3D mural and banners of hanging fabric with classic Girard motifs. Throughout our own work as designers we focus on themes as colour, pattern and movement, these are tenets of Girard’s practice we can identify with seamlessly.
Girard is inspired by his large collection of folk art objects (he had more than 100,000 artefacts) and uses their playful shapes in his bold and colourful prints.
