This panorama takes you on a journey to the foreign world of the microcosmos. Look out on a Leipzig garden from the pistil of a chamomile blossom. From the perspective of a grain of pollen, you can observe a giant bee as it pollinates the flower and discover the universe behind a flower calyx. A familiar world will unfold before your eyes in a completely new way, as if under a gigantic microscope. But unlike in a laboratory, it is the world around you that is depicted to be one hundred times its real size. Since January 31, 2020, the exhibition has also been supplemented with XXL insect models by designer Julia Stoess and new exhibits by Yadegar Asisi.
Since 2003, the artist Yadegar Asisi, who grew up in Saxony and lives in Berlin, has been creating the largest 360° Panoramas in the world, measuring up to 32 metres in height with a circumference of up to 110 metres. Since the launch of the EVEREST pilot project in a former gasometer in Leipzig, Yadegar Asisi’s work has spread to exhibition halls across many cities in Germany and abroad.
