"Colours are a fundamental facet of how we perceive the outside world. Governed by the invisible laws of colour theory, they influence our emotional relationships to nature, from celestial bodies to distant horizons. But what happens when we try to translate these naturally occurring palettes to a man-made digital environment? Is it still possible to engineer the same complexity of feeling? Can they be used as tools to probe more deeply into the laws of nature?

Not Only RGB is meant to explore the transposition of colour from the natural world into the realm of the digital, using digital landscapes to investigate the fundamental laws that govern our emotional and physical relationships to colour.

From our own subjective perceptions to the external world around us, this exhibition is a journey from microcosm to macrocosm through colour in digital realms." (Chiara Braidotti and Sia Pineschi, Curators)

Exhibition featuring artists : Kevin Abosch, Matt Kane, Mathieu Merlet Briand, Sarah Meyohas and 38‰ (Mattia Cuttini & Luca Donno).

Mathieu Merlet Briand, #PURPLE MINERAL, 2022

Mathieu Merlet Briand is a French digital artist who utilises his work to illuminate the synthetic ways in which information is shaped, guided, and fragmented, especially in reference to nature and technology.

In this new work designed specifically for the Not Only RGB exhibition, the artist continues his physical New Nature series with Purple Mineral, a virtual 3D sculpture depicting the abstracted form of a geometric purple crystal. As a sculpture in virtual space that requires the audience to fully experience it through their movement around the object, Purple Mineral translates the multi-faceted beauty of precious stones, which have captured human attention for aeons, to the eternal platform of the digital world. In this way, Merlet Briand embraces a hybrid understanding of the natural world as both delicate and expansive space, mirroring the complexity and infinity of the digital realm in many of the same ways.
