Galerie IFF, Aix-en-Provence, France

Icelandic artist Ráðhildur Ingadóttir's exhibition Infinity Pools is composed of two amorphous coloured forms painted directly onto the gallery's walls and ceiling. The effect is an all consuming environment which is suggestive of a variety of references but remains ambiguous. However for the artist the choice of the colours is of particular significance and suggestive of two differing notions of the infinite: the green is “the colour of an eider-duck egg” and the blue is an imagined colour. In this context there is a visceral meeting of the corporal world and the realm of ideas, and perhaps suggestive of Blaise Pascal's appreciation of the human condition: “what is man in nature? He is nothing in comparison with the infinite, and everything in comparison with nothingness, a middle term between all and nothing.”
