The July 2022 exhibition at the main hall of Nitroglobus: COLORES PRIMARIOS by the artist Bamboo Barnes. Too late to visit the exhibition coz it has been removed and replaced by the August one by the time this blog post is published. However, you will find in this article lots of images, reviews and info about how wonderful this exhibition was.
DJ hEIN! was super helpful and shot particles replacing Venus and Kurk who both were busy RL.
Furthermore I wish to express my gratitude to David Silence for the excellent poster he made and to Adwehe for the awesome light art she created.
The sculpture I placed in the gallery was a work in pink by Suzanne Graves.
In a hot and humid room, blue at the hem of the curtains.
In a windless room, red on the floor.
In closing your eyes and seeing it disappear, yellow.
What color is the ground you cower on?
What color is the sigh your breath makes?
What color is that place where you fall asleep?
What are your basic colors?
It has been more than 10 years since I started my creative activities, but I still don't know what I want to look for. Just like the passage of time. I drift along, drawn by the red shimmer.
Several reviews were published about Bamboo's excellent exhibition:
Very fitting to all the colours, Adwehe made the light effects again, colourful balls. And thinking of Bamboo’s description, I could ask myself: Which ball is mine?'
Frank wrote: 'In many ways, Bamboo has always used these primary colors to great effect in her past work as well. However, in this case, they play a pivotal role with a special focus on red, the one color which has fascinated her perhaps a bit more than others.
Each of us has our set of colors we feel comfortable to work with and which please us immensely. An artist, in many ways, is always on a journey towards finding the right mix that suits them. And as they drift along this journey come several fascinating discoveries, which help them hone their craft.'
