PIGMENT PRINT ON COTTON PAPER, FRAMED, 60X80CM
“Colored Concepts” is a piece that looks like an eclectic collection of memorabilia and plays with the allure and opacity of the silvery re ective surface. Here the objects from the artist’s teenage years have lost their original colors to become generic silver casts, while gaining in mystery. If some of the objects are fairly recognizable (a Walkman for instance) others (like what turns out to be a chicken’s rump) leave us perplexed.
The images are paired with the handwritten words describing the concepts that very much de ned the epoch: “transition”, “democratization”, “privatization”, “crisis” acquire here unexpectedly personal tones and reveal themselves as dramatic backgrounds for very intimate and unapologetically mundane concerns.
