Description

“Seven Worlds of Vysotsky” was an impressive and extraordinary exhibition in the Jewish Museum & Tolerance Center in Moscow. It was dedicated to Vladimir Vysotsky, a Russian poet, composer and actor of the 20th century, and brought his works to life in an unconventional way.

Instead of devoting himself to Vysotsky’s biography in the classic way, the design team of Lorem Ipsum concentrated on his songs. They chose seven typical themes and created immersive spaces that let visitors immerse themselves in the songs. These included a typical kitchen of a Soviet communal apartment, a psychiatric ward, a side street, a prison, a pub, a war trench and the house of the dead.

The result was a series of seven carefully reconstructed and extremely detailed rooms that looked like authentic snapshots of a film. The abundance of props as well as the faceless figures, which carried symbolic objects instead of a head, offered visitors an extraordinary and emotional experience. The visual impressions were supplemented with an audio track via headphones. Relevant songs were activated automatically when entering a room and completed the spatial experience.
