Carnovsky is a Milan-based mostly collective comprised of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. Their present RGB exhibition is on presently operating at Johanssen Gallery at Direktorenhaus in Berlin. The present runs by way of February 10, 2011.
The artists clarify the RGB explores the “floor’s deepness” and the designs create surfaces that mutate and work together with totally different chromatic stimulus. See the photographs under to see this in motion.
From the artists:
RGB’s method consists within the overlapping of three totally different pictures, every one in a main shade. The ensuing photographs from this three degree’s superimposition are sudden and disorienting. The colours combine up, the strains and shapes entwine turning into oneiric and never utterly clear. By means of a coloured filter (a light-weight or a clear materials) it’s potential to see clearly the layers by which the picture consists. The filter’s colours are pink, inexperienced and blue, every one in every of them serves to disclose one of many three ranges.
Carnovsky’s exhibition at Direktorenhaus, Berlin, is structured in three totally different scales, from the massive to the small, from an architectonic scale, to an object one, passing by way of the prints.
Within the architectonic degree one of many gallery’s rooms has been arrange with a big set up made from wallpapers and coloured lights: It’s a kind of “fresco” made with modern applied sciences, “frescos”, however as an alternative of being static, they’re in mutable and fluctuating, able to creating an ambient in steady motion.
The represented topic is the vintage theme of the metamorphosis meant as an unceasing transformation of shapes from a “primigenial chaos”.
For this function we now have created a type of catalogue of pure motifs beginning with the engravings from pure historical past’s nice European texts, between the five hundred and the seven hundred, from Aldrovandi to Ruysch, from Linneus to Bonnaterre.
A listing that doesn’t have a taxonomic or scientific purpose within the trendy sense, however that desires to categorise each the actual and the unbelievable, the true and the verisimilar in the best way medieval bestiaries did.
In every picture three layers stay collectively, three worlds that would belong to a selected pure kingdom, however that on the similar time hook up with a unique psychological or emotional standing that passes from the clear to the hidden, from the sunshine to the darkness, from the awakeness to the dream.
In addition to the set up, there have been introduced some new restricted version RGB items, developed on the normal enjoying card’s theme: a RGB enjoying playing cards deck and a collection of lithographic prints of the “Horseman” topic. In every card there are printed three totally different enjoying playing cards: The overlapping of colours mixes up the types in a means that it’s troublesome to acknowledge which determine is represented, an enigma that may be solved simply by way of using one of many coloured filters.
