The Czech and Slovak Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia 2015 presented a site-specific installation by artist Jirí David, for which we created the design and art direction. The installation, titled Apotheosis, takes as its departure point the monumental painting Apotheosis of the Slavs: Slavs for Humanity by the Czech Secessionist artist Alphonse Mucha. For the façade signage, website and catalogue published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, we drew from the monumental, bold and monochrome quality of the work as the basis of the pavilion’s austere identity.
