Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden has opened their repository for a semi-permanent exhibition about the Indonesian bronzes. The extensive collection shows the process of cultural exchange in South East Asia over a long period of time. Alluding to the symmetry of the Borobudur and the harmony of the temple at Prambanan, OTW in cooperation with Cecilia Henrikx, have created a rhythmical display within the open storage concept. In order to enhance the multitude and symmetry, large mirrors have been placed on either side of the long, narrow gallery. A large print opposite the showcases echoes the display at another scale, allowing the visitors to admire the fine details of the minute objects.
