REFLEX was an exhibition celebrating the Portuguese Constitution of 1911 and the process behind its making, featuring text excerpts, parliamentary speeches, images, cartoons, and original documents.
Designed by P-06 Atelier, REFLEX was installed in the antechamber of the Parliament within the Assembly of the Republic. Up from July to October 2011, the display consisted of a single 3- by-14-meter volume located in the center of the ornately decorated room. The volume was mirrored on one side, creating a series of reflections that allowed for a different perception of the space, and created unexpected visual and formal occurrences. The mirrored side featured the exhibition title and a single object: the original 1911 Constitution. On the opposite side, a generous “light box” narrated the story behind the Constitution in a graphic timeline emulating the newspapers of the time.
