About Supreme Court – 2006
DW
The Supreme Court of India has a museum that is integral to its campus and open to public, though not known to many. The Supreme Court Museum comprises two built levels.
DW
The lower level houses select memorabilia pertinent to the Indian judiciary and its heritage.
DW
The upper level is designated to be the venue of a series of exhibitions (each of three months’ duration) showcasing LANDMARK TRIALS OF THE JUDICIARY IN INDIA. The first in this series was the ALIPORE BOMB CONSPIRACY CASE – A landmark pre-Independence trial.
DW
The curatorial staff of the Museum had studiously collected artefacts from various sources and repositories in Kolkata for use in this exhibition. These comprised revolvers, bomb shells, bullet heads, documents pertaining to travel and communication by the accused, a typewriter on which the judgments were typed, photographs, original and photocopied maps and newspapers, propaganda pamphlets and a plethora of
legal documents.
DW
The project brief required the agency selected from the contenders to make a series of display cases to exhibit the artefacts that had been assembled, do exhibit specific lighting and prepare caption labels for each display along with a few display panels containing texts of
generic nature.
DW
Taking all things into consideration, Design Workshop recommended a radically different approach where the artefacts were woven into and embedded in a contextual, visual and an overarching narrative that ran continuously through this museum exhibition and held the exhibits together.
DW
After several sessions of discussion in which we walked the curatorial team through each aspect of the concept and its proposed execution, followed by the approval of an august bench of four Honourable Justices of the Supreme Court the concept recommended by Design Workshop was put in action.
DW
Intensive visual research, sensitively authored brief yet succinct text blocks, extensive usage of digitally re-mastered imagery and coherent space planning enabled Design Workshop to produce an exhibition that was inaugurated, amidst acclaim, by the then Chief Justice of India – Justice Y K Sabherwal - on May 13, 2006. This museum exhibition evoked interest from the general public in equal, if not in more quantum, than that from the legal fraternity.
DW
In order to enable more visitors frequent this exhibition, its closing date - August 31, 2006 was adjourned to October 31, 2006.
