David Batchelor: Colour Is

27 July – 25 August 2018

David Batchelor, 'Colour Is', 2018.
David Batchelor, Colour Is, 2018, projection still.

In his projection work Colour Is, David Batchelor presents a series of quotes about colour by artists, writers, critics and curators. Batchelor has been collecting one sentence statements about colour since about 2005 and his anthology is continually expanding. The quotes are presented as a looping PowerPoint display. There are no special fonts or slick animations – just sequences of words on coloured backgrounds that collectively form a quasi-manifesto on the complexity of colour.
