Domus | Clerkenwell Design Week

For the duration of Clerkenwell Design Week only, British artist Liz West will take over a section of Domus’ lower ground floor area on Great Sutton Street with a new installation, Live Colour. Liz West is known for creating vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light, having presented works both nationally and internationally, most recently in 2019 at St Albans Museum + Gallery, UK and Milan Design Week, Italy.

West has imagined a space with blue, pink, green, red and yellow rotating washes of each colour, against white floor and walls, with ‘pure’ white light as part of the cycle to normalise the overall colour intensity. The installation uses LED technology to create intense, saturated colour. Through West’s multi-sensory art, visitors to Live Colour will experience pure colour in an immersive environment like never before.

“Live Colour’ plays with people’s individual perception of colour, challenging how they feel when immersed totally in one colour, then quickly drowned in another in deep contrast. Colour is a universal language that is understood by all, although we each bring to the work our individual memories and lived experiences of colour”. Liz West
