The collection of photographs by Rene Magritte has a very informal character. In fact Magritte himself never showed them to the public. Some of the photographs present Magritte's friends, some are photographic sketches for paintings, and other show Magritte himself. Designing the exhibition we wanted to reveal sketchy and informal nature of this collection. We chose a script font, often present in Magritte’s paintings. We treated the walls of the gallery as if they were pages of the artist’s sketch book. We’ve designed some of the texts in shapes of clouds characteristic for Magritte’s art. We also decided to create a visual dialog with the photographs and play with them. We’ve designed drawings that were complementary to the photographs. Sometimes we wanted to show what might be out of the frame of the photograph, sometime it was just a funny drawing. We invited an artist Bogdan Achimescu to draw the images directly on the gallery walls.
