‘Filling up the Table’ – a part of ‘A Right Royal Adventure’ project in the Ashmolean Museum (review by VJB)

Interactive activity ‘Filling up the Table’ in the Ashmolean, by Vendi Jukic Buca

On Saturday, 24th March 2018, the part of GLAM (The Gardens, Libraries and Museums (GLAM) of the University of Oxford) Joint Museums Volunteer Service organised activities created by several volunteers to celebrate the Ashmolean’s acquisition of the William Dobson’s painting ‘Group Portrait of Prince Rupert, Colonel William Legge and Colonel John Russell’ on the 400th anniversary of the birth of Elias Ashmole. The whole event was named ‘A Right Royal Adventure’.

‘Filling up the Table’

As an archaeologist, Vendi Jukic Buca, PhD took a part in the program as author and conductor of the activity under the title ‘Filling up the Table’ in the Ashmolean museum The Activity was inspired by the empty table shown on the Painting. The idea was to bring the painting to life and to enable the visitors to recreate this historic scene using other artefacts available in the Museum.

The activity had multiple components: it included interactive object handling (17th century objects), setting up the empty table (as from the painting) with dishes and foods from the 17th century and taking pictures of the visitors dressed in the 17th century clothing (shown on the picture) with a Polaroid camera, followed up with the Trail. Visitors were motivated to leave a feedback.

The Trail consisted of the artefacts from adjacent rooms, carefully chosen and related to the Dobson’s painting and/or 17th century tableware made in the UK or exported to the UK. The selection of recipes from 17th century was presented, included a one by Lady Ann Fanshawe, who lived in Oxford in 17th century, the author of a recipe book. Additional information about Oxford (e.g., England’s coffee house being opened in Oxford in 17th century) was included. VJB was the designer of the Trail, as well as author of the drawings and photographs of the artefacts, other than those included in the database.

Both children and adults took part and enjoyed in the activity. The interest was high to the point that visitors queued in order to participate. Almost all printed Trails were taken.

AMZ – POP-ART SOLINJANKA (osvrt Vendi Jukić Buča)

Glava mlade djevojke pronađene u Solinu, skulptura poznata kao Solinjanka (možda Plautilla, supruga rimskog cara Karakale), jedan je od najpoželjnijih arheoloških suvenira, kao artefakt koji je, uz vučedolsku golubicu, vjerojatno najpoznatiji arheološki nalaz s područja Hrvatske. Glava Solinjanke izložena je u stalnom postavu Antičke zbirke Arheološkog muzeja u Zagrebu, čiji je prepoznatljivi zaštitni znak.

U muzejskoj Suvenirnici bilo je moguće kupiti vjernu repliku ovog antičkog portreta u originalnoj veličini izrađenu od gipsa.

Radi proširenja ponude kroz fascinaciju ovom jedinstvenom skulpturom, povodom Međunarodnog dana muzeja 2016. godine Arheološki muzej u Zagrebu koncipirao je posebno izdanje svog zaštitnog znaka – repliku skulpture u smanjenoj veličini te intenzivno obojanu skulpturu u obje veličine (izvornoj i smanjenoj).

Boje su različite te se kombiniranjem različito obojanih glava u prostoru postižu efektne vizualne kompozicije. Koncept je inspiriran pop-artom, umjetničkim pokretom sredine prošlog stoljeća, i djelima njegovog najpoznatijeg predstavnika, Andy Warhola.

Solinjanke u ovom izdanju predstavlje su u razdoblju od 14. do 22. svibnja 2016. godine, a čega se uvrštene u stalnu ponudu Suvenirnice AMZ-a.
