Edvard Munch spent the last 30 years of his life at Ekely, his villa just outside Oslo. The exhibition "Shadows" is designed as an abstract reconstruction of Ekely. Here visitors are invited to step closer to Munch by stepping directly into his home, his mind and his memories.
Yoke has created an immersive space using objects, light, sound and moving images to tell stories from Munch's life. Entering the home of Munch, the visitor walks through a sensory multimedia installation.
The exhibition combines the classic physicality of historical objects on display with new and innovative digital installations. A selection of Munch's personal belongings is on display in the exhibition, along with a timeline, which outlines the chronology of the artist's life.
Through tiny peepholes in the kitchen counter, clock, piano etc., younger visitors can experience a parallel story of Mr Storm, a little mouse that lived in Ekely alongside Munch.
Overall, the exhibition encourages visitors to connect with Munch, on a more personal level, by exploring various parts of his life through interactive and engaging experiences.
Yoke has developed the exhibition in close collaboration with the Munch Museum and Expology NO.
