Welcome Collection- Medicine Man
Inside the medicine Man I would like to describe my point of view of this exhibition, to start with, the interior design, it decorate all by the wooden material, the floor and the cupboard, when you first walk in the exhibition and the first thing you see is a wall of bottles, that have been place on the wooden made shelves, within the white light behind the bottles, that looks impressive, and well placing, also in the other side of the exhibition, they exhibit some interesting object that I never seem before, like the equipment of the old fashion surgery, it looks a bit terrifying, also some painting of a woman giving birth. In this exhibition, I was a bit shocked but very interested in the way of how the collector love these kind of weird and crazy objects that I never seen before, and I do feel like it is more accretive to me to see this them looking at some boring object in the national museum.
“Tibet’s Secret Temple”
To start with my point of view, when we first walk in to the exhibition, there was an introduction board that gives me some ideas of what are you going to see in the next few minutes. After that, you will be looking at the video about Tibet, there culture there religion, I was so into the video, it was so emotional and in the exhibition, they use two screen to show the same scene but in different angles, it was so powerful in the video, and it gives the audience a feeling of walking in to the other space, and I had completed lost in the way temporally. After watching the film, there will be the distribution of all information that you need to know about Tibet’s temple, and of course, the colour on the wall they using the Tibet’s religion colour “ blue, yellow, red, white, green.” Inside they showing many different objects in the temple, also the yoga, also the video demonstration how they do it, moreover at the end of the exhibition, they end up with another video to show how people feel about Tibet’s culture, what you had learn about it. I like the way of this exhibition, it like how you started and how you will ended the exhibition.
For the Medicine Man, is more likely an exhibition that you see someone’s collection, there own interest, but in the Tibet’s Secret Temple, it a bit more like understanding the culture of the Tibet, and because the Tibet exhibition is a temporally exhibition and special addition exhibition, what I mean is you won’t see it very often, therefore, they do put a lot of effort in it, to makes more audience want to visit.
