The Project

The National Insititute of History and Anthropology (INAH) required the coordination, management, install and shipping of the photographic installation Quetzalcóatl Fotográfico, which consists of 360 photographs covering archaeological, anthropological and contemporary Mexican culture, all mounted on a bespoke metal structure. The images represent a sample of the trajectory of the photographers Bob Schalkwijk, Pim Schalkwijk and Alfredo Martínez Fernández. The installation was designed by Adriaan Schalkwijk. The exhibition was installed in the National Museum of Anthropology and History in 2014, in the Regional Museum of Anthropology at Canton Palace, Mérida, Yucatán in 2015 and in the Mexican Senate in 2015.

The Realisation

Feasibility studies were made with regard to the spaces identified for install taking into account the logistics of the scale of the structure and public access.  The transfer of the collection was organised as were specialist personnel to undertake the install and deinstall work. A publication with original text was also produced to accompany the exhibition.
