Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

[05.03.19] Curated by Liat Chen, the RGB Universe explores the interaction between colour and light as artist Carnovsky’s dramatic printed wallpaper covers the iconic Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen this March.

In each image three layers live together resulting in an unexpected and psychedelic world where the colours mix up and the lines and shapes entwine, becoming oneiric and not completely clear. When a different coloured light filter is projected onto the images, it becomes possible to discover the layers through which the image is composed. The filter’s colours are red, green and blue (RGB), each one of them serving to reveal one of the three levels in a different way.

The three worlds could belong to a specific animal kingdom or to an anatomical part, but at the same time they connect to a different psychological or emotional status that passes from the hidden to the clear, from the darkness to the light, from the dream world to reality. The exhibition is an exploration of the surface’s deepness.

Waves of the Modern Age: An RGB Universe runs from 5 March – end of June at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen. Entry is free. Launch night on 5 March includes free sessions of colour therapy ChromaYoga. For further information, visit the venue’s website here.
