“Reading Blue”, performance by Tove Storch at MAM-Rio

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

MAM-Rio holds today, from 4pm, the performance “Reading Blue” by Danish artist Tove Storch, followed by A talk with the artist, researcher Laura Erber and curator Aukje.

The performance explores the materiality of the colour blue through a silent, meditative reading, without lyrics or words, just unique shades of blue. “Reading Blue” transforms the very act of reading, from a symbol decoding process into an abstract action of pure consciousness,

Based in Copenhagen, Tove Storch works with sculpture and performance to explore dualistic relationships between strength and fragility of certain materials, shapes and spaces. In her work, Storch combines architectural and minimalist forms in metal with fragile materials such as translucent silk and paper. Tove Storch sees her performances as a natural extension of her sculptural practice and defines the reading of color books as a kind of magnifying glass to see the qualities of color as material more clearly.
