14 October, 2010 – 15 January, 2011 in Motorenhalle Project centre for contemporary art in the frames of the international exhibition “On Flags, Colour Bags and Fixations. About the Nature of Colour in Political Space” the Kaliningrad Branch of NCCA presents the exhibition project “RED – RED. Yury Vassiliev and Carl Michael von Hausswolff “(Russia, Sweden).
This exhibition brings together the works of artists from the former Eastern block who share a common view on the nature of colour in a political space and ascribe to it such functions as communication, marking, signaling, leveling, exclusion and inclusion.
The “Red-Red” project presents two artists and two dimensions – Russia and Europe, two visions of the colour’s content.
Almost simultaneously – at the turn of the 20th and the 21st centuries – Yury Vassiliev and Carl Michael von Hausswolff initiated independent artistic studies of the red colour and now present their visions of the colour’s dramaturgy in one space.

 

 

Yury Vassiliev (Kaliningrad) presents the historical “Russianness” of the red color and its totalitarian substance referring to repressions, socialism building, bloody wars, communal life, economic decay, social inequality and indifference.
Carl Michael von Hausswolff (Stockholm) is attracted by the emotional aspect of the monochrome colour. In his installations he treats red as a magnifying glass by lighting up specific architectural spaces, objects, elements with powerful 20000 watt lamps.
In the frames of the exhibition the RED- RED project will be presented as multimedia installations using 12 screens.
