Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

Installations and Exhibtions

Aziza Chaouni was approached by the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen to design a pavilion for their exhibition “Arab Contemporary,” specifically the second module titled “Architecture, Culture and Identity.” 

The second module explores architecture’s role in shaping the identity and distinctiveness of the Arab world. The exhibition focused on characteristics shared by Arab countries – from the Arabian Peninsula to Lebanon and Morocco. In particular, the exhibition moves beyond the main cultural overlap in the Arab world (language) to understand how visual cultures are connected and nuanced between various cultures.  

 

ACP designed a pavilion inspired by the moucharabieh (a middle eastern screen), and the majlis (middle eastern seating rooms). The pavilion houses an art video and is composed of recycled wood. Some of the pavillion's structures are interactive, allowing visitors to adjust them
