For the first of this series of Friday Tours, Fiona McLachlan, Professor of Architectural Practice, will help us to think about colour in the built environment. Starting with a discussion of Céline Condorelli’s palette –developed over time, carrying meaning and derived from different exhibition spaces – it will consider how architectural colour will be codified while an artist will mix and adjust by eye. Following the exhibition’s emphasis on the labour and raw materials that underpin cultural forms, it will consider the processes of translation, collaboration and negotiation required when designs are constructed. Lastly, in Condorelli’s octopus-inspired installation, it will take us beyond technological ideas about colour to think about ambiguity, contingency and the unreliability of ‘factual’ colour.
