Floral compositions, colorful islamic patterns and unique woven artpieces: In the currently opened exhibition, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha displays artefacts and motifs that highlight the artistic and material exchange of cultures during the 16th–19th century. With large and fascinating carpets besides manuscripts, ceramics, metalworks and other objects the exhibits mark the beginning of the early modern period in Islamic art.
TAMSCHICK MEDIA+SPACE realized the welcoming immersive installation in the entrance area for Empty S.L., Spain according to the design of Boris Micka Associates.A mirrored projection gives the impression of a large pending sphere. Composed of interwoven patterns it creates a dynamic metaphor showing the connections of the featured dynasties: The Safavids in Iran (1501–1736), the Ottomans in Turkey (1299–1923) and the Mughals in India (1526–1857).
The exhibition will be open to the public until January 27, 2018.
