You’d imagine a vivid spectrum of multicolor would bask in while walking via a cathedral full of rainbows. A Spanish woman is Kimsooja’s 2006 site specific installation for the Palacio de Cristal in Madrid Spain. To Breather to expand and unite the architectural structure of the space, the woman had the whole floor tiled in mirrors. Then she covers the vault and complete glass surface of the palace with a translucent diffraction film. When outside light filters via glass and reflects off the film, it generates a rainbow spectrum that is mirrored in every part of the atrium. This lovely installation is also a part of great performance which plays recording of her breathing from an earlier piece entitled “The Weaving Factory”. The mind-blowing progresses and transitions in and out of multi colors tones and rhythms, subtly moving visitors via many emotional states and making the installation an experience beyond the visual. Indeed this is lovely effort.
