TRUE COLORS

The colorful Forest of Numbers at
the National Art Center in Tokyo

Maximalism takes centerstage for these three artists

Emmanuelle Moureaux
After her first visit to Tokyo, Emmanuelle Moureaux says she was so
transfixed by the "thousands of colors seemingly floating in the cityscape as
layers, as 3D elements," that she moved there. Twenty-four years later, the
French architect and designer, who forged the concept of shikiri (meaning
dividing space using colors) remains smitten-with both her adopted home
and a hue's power to conjure emotion.
To commemorate her studio's 10th anniversary in 2013, Moureaux
launched 100 Colors, a sensorial installation series that highlights a nuanced
spectrum of 100 shades. It now travels to cities like Brussels and Dubai, taking
different forms in various environments, such as the swaying strands of paper
in a rainbow of tones that adorns the ceiling at New York's Color Factory.
But that's just the beginning of her genius. Last summer, for the two-

pronged celebration of the Japanese star festival Tanabata and the 100th
anniversary of the popular soft drink Calpis, Moureaux reinterpreted the
Tanabata ritual of scribbling personal hopes and dreams onto pieces of
colored paper and hanging them on bamboo branches with the exhibition
Universe of Words. Tokyo's 3331 Arts Chiyoda center was filled with
140,000 suspended hiragana, the rudimentary 46-character Japanese
alphabet. "Walking through, words gradually came to mind," Moureaux
says of her inspiration.
Currently, Moureaux fuses the importance of color and dates in Slices
of Time, her exhibition at the NOW Gallery in London (through April
17th), and has recently finished a work of public art for the Taipei metro's
Circular line. As long as she is "able to obtain the beauty of colors I want,"
she says she has no preference for material. "Only colors matter."
