Colourfields: Radiating and Reflecting

Lola Bezemers work concentrateson the experience of colour and light in architectural spaces. When going to Iceland, she brought a pile of coloured fabrics to work with in the snow white landscape.Like using a white wall to project on, one can also use a white landscape for the same purpose.

A video work made outside in the landscape is presented inside the Bookshop project space and is juxtaposed by an interior light installation. Both works are comprised of coloured parachute fabric, yet make use of different characteristics of the material: In the installation the fabric radiates light and appears still and in the video the fabric reflects light and moves dynamically.
