You are about to see your entire life as an exhibition – About the “Hypothetical Museum” by Pedro Reyes

This activity is centered on a scale model of a hypothetical museum. You are about to see your entire life as an exhibition. The galleries in this model represent different moments from the cradle to the grave. This show is prospective and retrospective, it includes your future and your past.

To illustrate each moment you select objects from the shelves. In these small figures you may find a formal realization your internal worlds. They represent as complete as possible a cross-section of all inanimate and animate beings which we encounter in the external world as well as in the inner imaginative world: trees, plants, stones, marbles, wild and domesticated animals, ordinary women and men pursuing various activities, soldiers, fairytale figures, religious figures from diverse cultural spheres, houses, fountains, bridges, ships, vehicles, etc.

The ‘therapist’ plays the role of the museum’s curator. If you wish, you can explain to them what you are doing or wait until the end. They can clarify how some galleries can be used, however the rules are simple and you are the artist, your vision is what counts.
