RED-PINK

Consumption of Red-Pink

Consumption of Red-Pink, Mladen Stilinović, text in the catalogue Red-Pink, Podroom, Zagreb, 1979

CONSUMPTION OF RED-PINK

One part of my work refers to the consumption of red color in different contents and techniques. Red is the color which contains many diverse meanings. Taking red through various contents, I want to de-symbolise it, make it just a colour. Thus the effort, if we want to read the painting correctly, consists of wiping out our knowledge, and not in confirming it. If we want to read the work through knowledge of this colour,  there will be an absurd reading. Since we cannot hide knowledge, the works are read as symbols and de-symbols.
