Building from Shimmer’s first program of fading exhibitions in, through, and out of each other, we now shift rhythms by curating singular artworks over stretches of time. Higher! Higher! Lower, Lower. Louder! Louder! Softer, Softer embodies slow deliberate processes with a changing register. By doing so the exhibition moves like water, unfixed, in motion. We understand the exhibition as a choreographic score where through shifting rhythms, registers, and movements artworks overlap, where ideas and generations cross-over. The format of our exhibition unfolds over time, opening up and crossing conceptual, spatial, and temporal borders.

Presumably, the colour harmony was sent along with a letter dated 6 September 1921. Colour harmony VI is white, black, and grey. ‘Three Colours against grey’ is mentioned and may refer to the no longer existing Colour Harmony V.

 

“Furthermore, you will find here 1 card with a composition of 3 colours against gray which is meant for the bedrooms and the upstairs corridors. Furthermore a correct proportion of white, black and grey is for the hallway, attic, etc.
