Performance piece “Who’s afraid of Red, Yellow, Blue and the smell it creates” performed at the opening night (17-6-2016) of ENHLA KOMQONQO, The Unconscious Mind, Solo Exhibition by Vincentio Phiri.
Vincentio Phiri is an Abstract Expressionistic Zambian painter. For this exhibition we divided the exhibition space in 4 spaces and selected 4 artworks per space which are connected together to an emotion and a smell to the 4 selected works. also the touch sense is involved because the floors where covered with the material that smelled. Visitors has to walk on the substance to view the paintings. The 4 smells where: grounded coffee, sawdust and chips, ashes and African wet soil.
As the exhibition concept and designer I created an opening performance to “proper introduce by experience” Abstract Expressionism with a performance which deals with emotions, smells, senses and the “art creation process” in the Zambian Contemporary Art Context.
