Upcoming exhibition at Flutgraben Berlin!
A Museum of Colours
The carrying out of a series of exhibitions on colours can be seen as a founding step towards the establishment of a Museum of Colours.
Founder, Natacha Le Duff, first came up with this idea several years ago. The idea was revolved around a red room where one would have found together a clown‐nose, a Coca‐Cola logo, a communist flag… paying attention to the underlying contrasts associated to these symbols. And then the French flag, where red stands together with white and blue, also emerged. With the flag we see that sometimes colours only make sense together.
Various questions then arise: Can colours be presented as a whole – including the ways they connect to each other? Does it make sense to consider these cultural examples overlooking the scientific approach usually associated with colours?
Natacha prioritises sensorial, intellectual, and interactive approaches instead.
The Museum of Colours embodies the challenge of crossing disciplines, which study and use colours, in a space that would explore the diverse knowledge linked to them.
Outrageous, exciting, multidisciplinary project carried with passion, with an international calling. A project to talk about, support, but mostly contribute to.
