{

Hidden in the Lining: Krishna in the Garden of Assam is an exhibition at Chepstow Museum that tells the story of Assam, India and its history. Created in partnership with the British Museum, the centrepiece of the exhibit is a garment lined with ancient Vrindavani Vastra fabric, with links to Wales that were only recently recognised. The garment depicted tales from Lord Krishna’s life and also includes verses of the saint in ancient Assamese alphabets. It was part of the collection of a Welsh family which Chepstow Rural Distinct Council purchased in 1963.

15 Inch Video Button Unit and Single Cup Headphones at Chepstow Museum by Blackbox-av

With a series of videos to display about Krishna and the garment’s significant in Assam, we were contacted by Chepstow museum for some advice on the best way to do so, within a very strict budget. We therefore utilised two of our 15” Open Frame Video Screens and placed them into a bespoke housing unit – developed specifically for this project. Although graphics could be applied to the housing if required Chepstow chose to avoid this in order to allow the units to be used in future exhibitions, instead opting to simply utilise the ‘holding screen’ feature of the unit to display a list of accessible content.

The content is easily updated via an SD card in this case visitors can access stories of Krishna and the history behind the Garden of Assam and its fabric with Richard Blurton the curator of the original exhibit in the British Museum. The unique magnetic hangers utilised alongside our headphones allow tidy storage and minimises the chances of trip hazards occurring.
