Dulux Colours Evoke Atmosphere in New Te Papa Exhibition

To create the scenic landscape for 'Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War', Weta Workshop illustrators created exhibition elevations from photographs of Gallipoli supplied by Historical Director Chris Pugsley.

The Te Papa and Weta Workshop team wanted to create a foreboding, ominous and sombre atmosphere in the exhibition, and to evoke the landscapes and skies of Gallipoli.

"This exhibition will determine how New Zealanders remember the Gallipoli campaign for the 21st century," says Exhibition Historical Director, Dr Christopher Pugsley.

Scenic artist, Therese Eberhard then worked from these elevations, using a combination of Dulux paint colours to create an entirely unique scenic landscape throughout, using a variety of earth tones.

The rolling dark clouds, naturalistic clay tones, and darkened rooms contrast the exhibition’s striking red and black graphics, and work to complement Weta Workshop’s monumental figures.

Somewhat fittingly, one of the browns chosen is called Bunker.

Designers: Te Papa and Weta Workshop
Scenic Artist: Therese Eberhard
