Later in the summer of 2010 I returned to the Iceland, where I had a three week residency in the former summer house of Icelandic Conceptual artist Birgir Andrésson (1955–2007) in Seyðisfjörður, a town located in the North East of the island. Birgir had developed a special color system that he called ‘Icelandic colors’. As part of my investigation and as a homage to Andrésson, I made series of works investigating the relationship between colors, place and time. In Colors of the week, I spent a working week painting five monochrome surfaces, one each day. The color left over from one day would be used as basis for the next. This idea of color having a relation to time was further explored in House of Color, where I stitched a series of colored felt pieces together as if they were hanging on a clothesline. I then let them hang outside the house for two weeks. Each day, I would document the process with two photos using an old analogue camera; one of the house with the felt pieces hanging in front of it, and the other with the river flowing by outside the house. In a third work, I collected color, in the form of sand samples, from different areas around Iceland. The volcanic ground comes in a wide variety of colors ranging from white, green and red to ochre and black. The sand was then glued onto different boards creating a series of monochromatic surfaces. This was juxtaposed with a series of painted monochromes of the same format made inside using acrylic paints relating to the memory of colors I had seen outside.
