Farbnamenlexikon von A bis Z
Claudia de la Torre

This edition is a response to the installation Farbnamenlexikon von A bis Z. The work is a selection of 50 colour definitions found in the book Farbnamenlexikon von A bis Z, a color lexicon edited in Germany and written by George Seuffert in 1950. This book is an attempt to classify the subjectivity of what a color is. I chose 50 descriptions found in the book, and selected 50 images from my archive according to the color descriptions contained in the book. The sound that accompanies the work is a voice recording of selected definitions. The viewer is free to decide which image corresponds to which description. The box contains the CD with the tracks of the definitions, and all the constellations printed in Black and White.

Silkscreened box, 43x31x3.5 cm, 6 Leporello prints, each print: 42x119 cm, CD, edition/10+2AP signed & numbered, 2013
