This Sasso stone is a special and limited edition originating from the artist’s book Von Farben, die in Steinen Wohnen. This artist’s book shows the relationship between an extraordinary stone, spirited colours and two artists. One artist immersed in the experience of colour and the other was deeply captivated by the mysterious beauty of stones. From their meeting, they walked daily in the forest that smelled musty and sweet at the same time, so they called it The Caramel Forest. And on these walks, they couldn’t stop pointing at colours and placing stones in each other’s hands. Do you see this? Do you feel that?
They decided to make a book with the deep, mysterious colours of one special, precious stone. Would they get to know the stone even better this way? Could they hear the tones and sounds of the colours even better?
And now that the publication is in their hands, they still whisper to each other questioningly: ‘Does the stone show the colours or do the colours show the stone?’
Chamber of Colours is a collaboration of two visual artists:
Uta Neumann is a visual artist based in Berlin. From her love for landscape and stones she makes tactile installations using photography, video and sound.
Barbara Collé is a visual artist and philosopher based in Amsterdam. She focuses on our experience of colour. By examining how colours smell, sound and feel, she explores how they connect us to the world around us. She makes artist’s books and writes stories about her sensual interactions with colours.
