Lodève Museum has a rich and varied collection of fine art split into 3 exhibitions, Man’s Footprints, Traces of Life and Sculpting Lives. The latter is the museum’s most overtly contemporary exhibition, comprising works from the studio of sculptor, Paul Dardé, which the museum conserves. We created two approaches for this exhibition, “Dardé, the magician” and “The life and work of Dardé”.

For “Dardé, the magician”, we re-edited and added a subtle motion design application to an extract from the film, The Magician (Rex Ingram, 1926) featuring the sculpture, “Le Grand Faune” (currently on display in the museum atrium) and Paul Dardé.

The second project, “The life and work of Dardé”, is a dynamic slideshow retracing the sculptor’s life. The 8-minute video combines archive images (photos, press articles and sketches, etc.) with motion graphic design to showcase the life this local artist.
