After Colors

The grand opening exhibition at Aranya Art Center starts with “color,” a daily concept. By presenting six individual, monochrome works, it blurs the boundary between the publicity and privacy of its venue and digs into the relationship between the subjective spiritual experience and the objective field in the contemporary context. 

Introduction

Colors exist, in biological terms, not by themselves but through visions of us human beings. We perceive the light that has been reflected on our retinas, which becomes what we recognize as colors. It is upon this visual process that we build our world. In our feeling and understanding of colors, individuals’ experiences become infinite. Josef Albers views colors “the most relative medium in art,” and the most direct information we can receive in our daily visual activities. Though in essence colors are results of our neural actions, we habitually endow them with meanings and attempt to constitute specific common knowledge among communities. Nevertheless, does everyone see color in the same way?

The grand opening exhibition at Aranya Art Center starts with “color,” a daily concept. By presenting six individual, monochrome works, it blurs the boundary between the publicity and privacy of its venue and digs into the relationship between the subjective spiritual experience and the objective field in the contemporary context. The monochrome space thus points to both the visual and spiritual dimensions, as well as Aranya’s daily space. As Olafur Eliasson writes in 457 Words on Color, “The experience of being in the monochrome space of course varies with the people, but the most obvious impact of the yellow light is that the perception is obviously acquired:The representations filter is brought to our awareness and with our ability to see ourselves in differed light.”As we expect,colors here are no longer facdes,but space that composes the spectacle,with invites the audience to immerse themselves and to explore the vastness after color.
