Installation and paintings
30.1 - 19.2.2015
Opening on 29th of January from 6pm
The themes in the exhibition are reiteration and reflection through colour.
The installation “ Kaiku/ Ekho” consists of the diary entries of the year 2014 displayed in chronological order in the space.
Each diary entry is a reiteration of an oval stencil noted with its date and its colour. I have selected a neutral shape, the oval as a symbolic representation to the day. Like the words in a diary, the colour given to the oval represents the feeling, emotions, moods, light or colour in the nature of that day. When colouring the oval, I tried to use as less texture as possible so the hues and tonality remain the most important components.
In this project I studied the potential of the colour as a mean of expression and the relations between individual and communal experiencing. Each of us have a very individual way of sensing and feeling about colours. There are no general verified rules related to how we sense colours and for example which colours represent joy or sadness or hope etc..thus this diary is a personal view on the subject. The paper serves as a media to reflect life and to document time. The installation transforms a private diary into public.
The paintings in the exhibition are an extension of the installation both in terms of content and form.
