Rembrandt Speaks
Immersive Atelier

About the project

It is said that Rembrandt’s portraits are so realistic that if you look into their eyes, you can almost hear them speaking. In this original cross-media installation, Rembrandt himself speaks – for real.

The note-perfect recreation of the artist’s historical atelier in Amsterdam.

After ringing a doorbell, audiences are ushered into a dark, mysterious space where they are met with only a voice and a pair of eyes – both soon revealed to belong to Rembrandt.

After ringing a doorbell, audiences are ushered into a dark, mysterious space where they are met with only a voice and a pair of eyes – both soon revealed to belong to Rembrandt.

Visitors are introduced to Rembrandt’s self-portrait, his style and his technical mastery through visual storytelling and Rembrandt’s own verbal accounts, as the lights come up in the note-perfect recreation of the artist’s historical atelier in Amsterdam. We go from hearing how faces contain stories, and how he captures that, to a faithful copy of the very studio used by the master artist – lived-in and wonderfully detailed.

Audiences can see his dynamic curtain system used to control light on his subjects; they can mix powders for pigments in a grindstone dish; and they are treated to a step-by-step tutorial of the process he used in constructing his paintings.
Finally, audiences are treated to a plethora of rich digital renderings of Rembrandt’s masterpieces – and upon their exit, an app that allows them to learn, remember and adapt what they heard in the immersive exhibition to a practical, fun activity will keep the whole experience close to their hearts for years to come.
