Intro
The exhibition BEIGE is quite simply about the colour beige and incorporates an oasis of beige jewellery/body-related objects from a variety of jewellery makers and artists from all over the world. All the pieces are specifically made for the exhibition.

Everyone seems to have an opinion about beige as a colour or its associations (perhaps more than many other colours), and it has proven to be surprisingly challenging for some participants, but at the same time surprisingly easy for others. Reactions to beige are perhaps just as diverse as the colour itself and that is clearly visible in how the participants have tackled this project.

BEIGE is at the same time an investigation/experiment and explores notions such as: How did the participants react to the theme? What was it like to make a monochrome work? What happens to the space when all of the works are in the same colour? How does it affect us (as viewers) when we only have one colour or nuances of the same colour to look at?
The result is a constellation of strong and sometimes unexpected expressions, which encourage curiosity and a dialogue about this somewhat loaded colour.

. Maybe it had come with the wind, but it was on the way back that the first signs showed up. The surface got covered with a thin indeterminate layer; the cracks opened and allowed the heat to rise. A dry sensation was spreading, and the sweet smell that was creeping in was numbing. It recalled everything that had gone before.. Malene Kastalje
