The Masters Of The Renaissance. What would they do with a Mirror Head?
In collaboration with COFO Entertainment and United Motion Labs, we helped realize a concept that surprised visitors. During the exhibition that took place in Berlin, DIE GROSSEN MEISTER DER RENAISSANCE, we offered viewers a unique perspective on art and for them the possibility to experience art in a different form.
The collaboration aimed to honor the timeless masterpieces of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Sandro Botticelli, and Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino in an innovative way, bringing century-old paintings into the modern age through mesmerizing projections.
For the first time, their most important master pieces could be experienced in one single place. The exhibition, held in the historic Parochial Church, presented around 60 high-quality reproductions of the Renaissance masters’ works.
The addition of media art installations by United Motion Labs and the use of the Mirror Head by Dynamic Projection Institute added an unexpected dimension to the experience.
Notably, the famous painting “Lady with an Ermine” by Leonardo da Vinci took on a dynamic transformation. The weasel within the painting came to life, climbed out of its confines, moved across the walls, explored its surroundings, and even engaged in painting the very walls it once decorated.
In the art installation “In The Breeze” the immersive experience unfolds as it extends the narrative of Sandro Botticelli’s renowned masterpieces: ‘The Birth of Venus,’ ‘Primavera,’ and ‘Mars and Venus.’ A harmonious and all-encompassing atmosphere connects these three mythological scenes, seamlessly intertwining them into a captivating visual symphony that serves as a dynamic projection playground for a graceful dance, evoking the ethereal essence of the Renaissance era.
Gerry Hahn from United Motion Labs expressed the collaborative goal: “Our aim was to create media art, which respects and honors these 4 great artists of the past and at the same time pushes the boundaries of live experience in an exhibition context by extending space and storytelling of these inspiring artworks.”
This innovative approach not only paid homage to the artistic giants but also added a layer of surprise and interactivity, providing visitors with a fresh and engaging perspective on the enduring legacy of Renaissance art.
