The Nationalmuseum in Stockholm presents Hella Jongerius’s exhibition ‘Breathing Colour’, a visual installation that features the results of her longstanding research into colour, shape, light and materials.

Tarkovski — the exhibition
Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam
Tarkovski — the exhibition | Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2019
With associative films rich in imagery, such as Andrei Rublev (1966), Solaris (1972), The Mirror (1974) and especially Stalker (1979), Andrei Tarkovsky (1932‒1986) made his name as a leading innovator of the language of cinema. Eye presents an exhibition devoted to the celebrated filmmaker and mystic, focusing specifically on Tarkovsky’s quest for existential truth. In addition to immersing the visitor in Tarkovsky’s imagery, the exhibition includes unique documents — letters, photos and Polaroids — that have never previously been displayed in the Netherlands.
Interlace — Hella Jongerius
Lafayette Anticipations Paris
Interlace — Hella Jongerius | Lafayette Anticipations Paris | Exhibition | 2019
Throughout summer 2019, Lafayette Anticipations invites the Dutch designer Hella Jongerius. She uses the building’s performative qualities to transform the interior space into a vast, constantly shifting loom; a giant textile studio, open to the public.
Interlace exposes the viewing public to the textile production process in order to create awareness, re-valuation and appreciation for textiles. It shows what consumers don’t usually see: the research and experimentation, the tools and materials, the trial and error that are as important as the result itself.
Throughout the three months of the exhibition, the public will be able to see new textile pieces being woven in the gallery space.
