Colour Identification Chart

Artwork for Aalsmeer Historical Garden as art of art manifestation ‘Waardige Zaken’, (NL)
Rudy J. Luijters, 1999
Curator: Nicolaas Dings

For the contemporary art manifestation at different locations in Noord Holland, Rudy J. Luijters was invited to develop a site specific work of the historical garden of Aalsmeer. He created a Color Identification Chart that consists of colour squares taken from slides made on the first sunny day of spring 1999. The garden is then just coming into bud. All made-up colour names derive from the cultural, philological or botanical background of the plants and objects. The chart was available for all visitors.
