VENUE: LA PATINOIRE ROYALE | GALERIE VALÉRIE BACH, BRUSSELS, BELGIUM
Carlos Cruz-Diez’s installation of an outstanding Labyrinthe de Transchromie - a project that he conceived at the end of the 60’s and completed for the first time in the nave of La Patinoire Royale | Galerie Valérie Bach in Brussels - definitely is an important landmark in the artist’s long-time carrier.
Litterally meaning “though the color”, this Transchromie invites the visitor to penetrate into color, on the basis of nine different shades ingeniously distributed by the artist in twenty five pairs of right-angled slats. By juxtaposing these colored and transparent panels on a white, immaculate and reflexive surface over 200 square meters, the artist invites the visitor to stroll inside the color and to create by his progression and the addition of colors and entirely individual chromatic experience.
With Cruz-Diez, color no longer just informs the art of looking for the sake of looking, but establishes new modes of perception, through a complete bodily experience.
