Artistic Director Stefanie Carp and artist Olu Oguibe decided to realize the temporary installation „Colours of Europe“ in 2020 the third year of Carp’s artistic directorship. The installations „Appeal to the Youth of All Nations“ and „Colours of Europe“ by Olu Oguibe frame Stefanie Carps theme „In-between Time“ of Ruhrtriennale 2018 – 2020.
About The Installation
The visual artist Olu Oguibe will develop a temporary work for the glass façade of the Jahrhunderthalle foyer employing the formal language of minimalist architecture. By applying coloured overlays he enables modulations of light and colour to be evident in the foyer while transforming the building’s external appearance. With the eponymous Colours of Europe, Oguibe makes reference to the diverse European community which is continually negotiating an amicable way to live together.
