In november 2017 the Finnish goldsmith Mari Keto transformes the ruin hall at Koldinghus into a coherent installation where she invites the visitor into a sparkling, magical landscape. Beauty beguiles the eye, but on closer inspection, the unpleasant truth about humankind’s overexploitation of nature is revealed. Angels drop dead. A mini-city pours out of the belly of a stuffed moose, and between the colourful wings in the butterfly collection silver-cast human bodies are frozen in a silent scream.
For this exhibition Koldinghus needed a concept and design for the signage within the exhibition as well as the catalogue.
The overall expression of the exhibtion was captured in the catalogue by using the colours from the installations in the catalogue and also by using a silver hot foil on the cover as a reference to the silver used in a lot of the art pieces. The signage is simple and elegant black print on birch veneer
