      2020/21: Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser

      Curious Alice invites audiences to tumble down the rabbit hole and embark on a mind-bending trip into Wonderland through the playful dimension of virtual reality...  In her most recent collaboration, the V&A asked Kristjana to create some original artwork to complement this fully immersive, interactive re-imagining of Wonderland, celebrating one of the most iconic and inspiring stories of all time and the subject of the V&A's major 2021 exhibition Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser

      To accompany the exhibition, The V&A commissioned Kristjana to create a book, telling the story of Alice through enchanting and fantastical illustrations.

      The V&A will host an immersive virtual reality event, providing a sneak preview of the exhibition, and launch the Curious Alice VR experience.  Embracing the dreamlike qualities of the classic novel, the setting will transform and adapt throughout the event, including live visual effects.

      Kristjana’s Opera Mask, with its ‘do it yourself’  element, allowed the user to finish decorating the mask themselves, much as one has a personal reaction to opera itself.  The Palais Garnier Callas Opera Journey Diorama, was exclusively sold in the V&A Shop and sold out, but the Limited Edition print of the design is available to purchase here: The Palais Garnier Callas Opera Journey - Art print
