Memento Mori: Remember you must die
Artist: Rachel Yoder
Yoder’s colour field paintings play with the biological tension created within the eye when two colours at specific tones are presented side by side. Yoder is concerned with this brain interpretation and how this is translated into the current aesthetic of the traditionally termed “conceptual” and “minimal” artworks in contemporary art. The interactive component urges the audience to answer a series of questions related to mortality and being that will in turn create a unique colour field to represent that person.
