September 22 was the opening of the long-awaited exhibition "The Golden Age of Danish Painting (1801-1864)” at the Petit Palais (Paris). I.C.O.N. worked on it for a long time. Initially planned for April, it was postponed. So, all the scenography team of Didier Blin are delighted that it finally came up. It would be sad if the epidemic triumphed over the art.
This quality exhibition had already been presented in Stockholm and then in the National Galleries of Denmark where the team visited to study it beforehand.
Hailed by the press and visited by the Princess of Denmark, it leads us into a chronological and thematic scenography. The company adapted the lighting according to it to emphasize the sensations of visitors. It takes you to Rome, a place to learn classical aesthetics, in daylight before moving into a cozy living room atmosphere full of portraits. Finally we will "come out" among the landscape paintings with a feeling of almost external luminosity.
The design was also adapted to some complementary aspects: colors of the walls was to be enhanced without exaggerating, engravings required reduced illumination level but without creating dim area, the artificial light had to reproduce that of a Danish artist's studio during the day, an illustrative statue was added with side lighting simulating that it receives from the window in the neighboring painting which represents it… The light therefore required delicate adjustments.
