‘The Road to Ballerup’


In close collaboration with Ballerup Museum, Kvorning Design & Communication has provided concept, exhibition design, graphic design, production and implementation for a remarkable, permanent exhibition which depicts the destiny of the Grand Duchess Olga of Russia and other immigrants who have settled in Ballerup, just north of Copenhagen, over the years.

Taking its point of departure in the story of the Russian princess Olga Alexandrovna, who fled the Russian Revolution in 1917, the exhibit explores a series of humane questions and themes, such as ‘What is my culture?’, ‘What is a home?’, ‘Identity’ as well as ‘Personal choices’. Paintings, objects, personal belongings tell the immigrants’ stories and the concept features various narrative styles and techniques, stylishly supported by light and sound effects.
