Color is alive is a research into natural inks for screen printing. ‘Color is Alive” invites to look into colors as a series of living bodies, not meant to be here forever. It challenges the idea of art conservation and the conception of artwork as an eternal one.
“It means thinking about colors as close to us, as alive as us. With their own destiny and purpose, and an end too. Is thinking colors as elements more close to our bodies then what we usually think they are. This is an aspect that is very present in my practice” – says Greta – “the observation of the relationship between interiority and exteriority, through the senses. Once again, starting from my body, looking into another one: Color.”
Started in May 2021, this research was made possible by the Makersregeling Subsidie from Gemeente Den Haag in collaboration with the Grafische Werkplaats.
Opening weekend: HOOGTIJ#67 on Saturday 27 November from 2 pm to 6 pm. and on so. 28 November 2-5 pm 28 november 14.00-17.00 u.
