This installation featured the work of Amsterdam-based artist Flansje Killaars. Killaars, who apprenticed under painter Sol LeWitt, had an epiphany about color in India: the hues she used to create his two-dimensional paintings were the same colors that Indians used to adorn and enhance their lives. Thus, she made the leap from canvas to living spaces, from brushes to textiles. Just as she had once painted pictures to hang in living spaces, his works now incorporated those spaces themselves as part of the architectural and environmental processes. Here, KIllaars used Shigeru Ban’s paper tube structure to transform the gallery into a fresh and vibrant space.
