The collection of more than 140 pieces was bound for an exhibition at the Nairobi National Museum.

Entitled Un’Infinita Attesa dell’Alba (An Infinite Expectation of the of Dawn), the exhibition by Italian artist Flamina Mantegazza aimed to raise awareness for the preservation and respect of the environment through works that “testify to a vigilant awareness of the passing of life and time”.

AGS Kenya Transports Fine Art for Nairobi ExhibitionThe Kenyan capital was the exhibition’s third stop, following a tour of Senegal and Ethiopia. AGS Kenya managed its export and transport from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, clearing the four crates of works through customs at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and storing them temporarily at the AGS Movers warehouse.

Ahead of opening night, the Nairobi National Museum shut its doors while the AGS experts carefully removed the layers of protective packaging from each piece before installing it in the exhibition space.

“For the past three years, we’ve done two to three art transfers a month,” explains Thibault Malézieux, Director of AGS Kenya. With its flexibility and experience, AGS has the expertise to handle the technically demanding logistics of art transport. A skill set that is especially important when the artist’s medium is the fragile and brittle paper mâché.
