Game of Thrones / Teaser

“Game of Thrones” featured the mise-en-scène of a Chinese Emperor’s Throne from the collection of the Museum für Asiatische Kunst (Kangxi Period, 1662-1722). Konstantin Grcic, Kirstine Roepstorff, Simon Starling, and Zhao Zhao presented different contexts for an exhibition arranged into a seemingly absurd juxtaposition of four throne rooms. Thus, the experiment distanced itself from a reconstruction of architectonic relationships; instead, it referenced the various levels of the historical artifact to create associative experiences in a contemporary context. The project ventured to take an unusual approach toward the trappings of power of a land that has long been reduced to its exoticism in Europe and inquired into the potential of scenic interpretation in the museum.
