Exhibition, Self-service Museum
Red. Exposure to Colour is an interactive, experimental space that will allow you to experience the colour red at multiple levels. By delving into the monochrome scenery, you will have an opportunity to explore different qualities represented by red and feel how it affects your reactions and well-being. The exhibition consists of six interactive zones where you can safely experience the full potential of this colour.
You can start the experience by immersing yourself in a soft beanbag and listening to stories about the body and the emotions inscribed in it. Contours of vaguely discernible images emerging from the dense background will take you to a world of red qualities. While playing with a large-format magnetic collage – “The Garden of Pleasure” – you can experiment with the vision of experiencing the fullness of life.
Entering the space of fire awakens your energy, courage, impulsiveness, and maybe even anger, but you can give immediate vent to these feelings by hitting a punching bag. Taking on the contemplative challenge of “plaiting intentions” will make you fully realise what it means to persevere in pursuing the goal. Once you have found a comfortable position in the soft cocoon-swing, it will be the best time to indulge in the soothing sense of safety and pleasure, reminiscent of the time spent in the womb at the very beginning of your existence.
Red also means spontaneous and overwhelming joy, readiness to have fun and play pranks. Let them carry you at the exhibition. See you soon!
