The evolution of an artist’s work never follows a linear, sequential line; it often turns back on itself to incorporate and develop earlier ideas. On the basis of this concept, UNStudio designed the installation for the exhibition "Constant. Space + Colour" at Cobra Museum of Modern Art in Amstelveen as a maze allowing visitors to follow a chronological or dynamic exhibition route, allowing them to discover new links between the works on display.
The exhibition focuses in particular on the research which led Constant from his Cobra period to the New Babylon project in 1950, and includes large-scale architectural projects designed in collaboration with Gerrit Rietveld and Aldo van Eyck.
A series of dark lines runs through the exhibition, creating visual links between the exhibition modules, framing perspectives and recalling the geometric structures present in Constant’s work. The exhibition route also includes a number of rooms exhibiting paintings, drawings, sculptures and other installations.
