Art and design are configurations of colour, light, form, shadows, reflections and materiality. The Hella Jongerius – Breathing Colour exhibition is ensconced in the borderline between art and design. It presents a visual examination of how colour and light interplay and change during all hours of the day. In forms of paper, textiles, ceramics, metal and plastics, internationally renowned star designer, Hella Jongerius displays her many years of artistic research into colour, light and materiality. As a designer, she often questions the perfunctory views of design manufacturers and the use of colour in the development of products. Jongerius argues that this leads to our missing out on aspects and experiences of the world around us. Her study is deepened in the meeting of the works of art she has chosen from Nationalmuseum’s collections.

After the renovation of Nationalmuseum, the museum exhibits art against coloured walls and integrated so that painting and sculpture meet textiles and ceramics from the same period. The colour schemes in the different rooms is the result of long-standing studies conducted by the museum into how colour, art and design interplay with the goal of giving the objects a context that increases their degree of visual attraction.

In presenting Hella Jongerius – Breathing Colour to the audience hopefully will lead to increased reflection and discussion about how colour influences us and our experience of the world.
