Situation

Following a sensational discovery of artifacts from the 17th century a private construction site in Litzlberg got timed in order to collect and restore the findings, which included a well preserved corpse inside a metal coffin, for a temporary, local exhibition. Further investigations revealed connections to protestantism and a certain noble family, as the corpse was identified. The exhibition was intended to convey historical context as well as to document the work-in-progress behind the excavation.

Concept

The exhibition was displayed through a modular arrangement of 6 containers. In order to amplify the impression of this raw setting, content and signage was printed on familiar building material, such as multi-skin sheets, that were mounted on a wooden framework outside and inside the container. The descriptions and texts were split into numbered chapters, that should eventually lift the secret about the mysterious woman of Litzlberg at the end of the exhibition.
