‘Kortrijk - The rainbow is a bridge between everyone and everything - 2’

Continuation of my previous photo.

The work ‘Your age and my age and the age of the rainbow’ of Ugo Rondinone is one of the many artworks and installations shown in the second triennial of 'Paradise Kortrijk 2021' which takes place from June 26 to October 24, 2021.

According to Ugo Rondinone the rainbow is a bridge between everyone and everything.

The 50 meter long structure supports hundreds of images of rainbows painted on plywood panels by children, aged six to twelve.
Assisted by the city of Kortrijk, Ugo Rondinone managed to engage more than 900 primary school children from the Kortrijk region for this project.

The participatory artwork is also a poetic project full of emotion and hope.
The children from seventeen organisations and schools painted rainbows that together formed the largest rainbow painting ever.
In these times of global division and inaccessibility, Ugo Rondinone takes an open and generous ethical stance. The artist tries to restore our belief in the magic of the moment and the human essence of contemporary art.

The 50 meter long structure has paintings on both sides.
Materials: birch plywood, acrylic paint, pencil, water-repellent protection, steel, variable dimensions.

Two more pictures in the WS.
