Through a fantasy story about eccentric inventor professor Berlió, the exhibition is set in a fictional “botanical-zoological-acoustic” garden, where plants and animals are sound objects and instruments. The visitors are encouraged to touch the exhibits, play them themselves and create sounds and music.


“This exhibition is not important only in the art-morphological-genre overcoming of the puristic borders of artistic expression, but teaches us once again, that good exhibitions should not remain one-dimensional, visual and educational-emotional experience, especially when talking about exhibitions for children. Such exhibitions have to create visual-tactile world full of spatial and meaningful impressions, intelligent messages and magical stories, similar to entering a land of fairy tales or a new temporal-spatial dimension. Peter Kus proves us that his imagination and creativity do not have any limitations. We are sure that Croatian public will award it for the third time at his exhibition in Rijeka, after previous exhibitions in Šibenik and Osijek.” Iva Koerbler, (Zagreb), 14. 11. 2015
