The installation spatially narrates the story of Oenorama and its 25 year history.
Each Oenorama contributes to the understanding of and familiarization with a whole creative journey: from fruit to winemaking process up to the enjoyment of the wine. While discovering the latter, the visitor travels backwards in time in order to explore varieties, vintages, the stages of winemaking, secrets, time.
It’s a kaleidoscopic installation about wine and its production cycle. The course of Oenorama through time is an ongoing story. Its invisible text will be continually enriched with each new exhibition: the current one in 2019 and those to come.
On the outside the shape of the installation is a clean, compact, single shell, totally white. Inside, an illusion of depth; a play of light and color. A “kaleidoscope”, the toy with the transparent cover, mirrors, and small pieces of glass which allows light to pass through and create small ephemeral formations. Similar to the play of aroma, flavor and aftertaste.
A multi-layered structure, a non-rectilinear spatial storytelling where the past unfolds through the posters which have accompanied every exhibition. A colorful stop in times gone by, with no beginning or end, just like memories which come randomly and unexpectedly.
