We wanted visitors to be co-creators of the installation. Ultimately, the public totally recreated the installation, the reading of the notes – written by the public – and the conversation around the memories became protagonists of the whole exhibition. The physical installation we created took a secondary role

This highly successful exhibition got people together around the main art installation table to comment on the different smells and scents found in each bottle.

Participants were also invited to write down what memory, recollection or reminiscence that scent brought to mind.
