RGB by Carnovsky at DreamBags-JaguarShoes

Milanese collective Carnovsky have decked out east London bar and gallery DreamBags JaguarShoes in their wallpaper that changes under different lighting conditions.

Called RGB, the papers are printed in red, green, blue and yellow to reveal different layers of imagery when viewed with coloured lighting.

Big game emerge from the undergrowth in red lighting, monkeys in blue lighting and a jungle of plants in green lighting.

DreamBags JaguarShoes is named after the two shops that occupied the space in the 1980s. The same signs still hang on the shop front.

Here are some more details from Carnovsky:

RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”.

RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus.

RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color.

The resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting.

The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear.

Through a colored filter (a light or a transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed.

The filter’s colors are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal one of the three levels.

In each image three layers live together, three worlds that could belong to a specific animal kingdom or to an anatomical part, but at the same time connect to a different psychological or emotional status that passes from the clear to the hidden, from the light to the darkness, from the awakeness to the dream in something that could be a sort of exploration of the surface’s deepness.

We have always wanted to explore the concept of "Jungle" or really tangled, intricate and dense tropical forest, and for the exhibition at DreamBags-JaguarShoes we have created some new pieces, new wallpapers and new limited edition prints about this idea.

The jungle subject, with its exuberant, twisted and redundant vegetation that hides bizarre creatures, lends us to the exploration of another theme: the night.

For the first time in fact we are presenting some pieces from a new series that represents an evolution of our RGB project: RGB - The black series.

They follow the same original RGB principles but inverted, so it works over a black background and, looking through the filters, lights or transparent materials in the three colors, the worlds appear on negative.

The space at DreamBags-JaguarShoes that was already divided in two, gave us the idea to divide the installation in two parts, one white and one black, as if they were the day and the night.

RGB by Carnovsky at DreamBags-JaguarShoes

Through a green filter or light it is possible to see the jungle clearly, and through a red all the jungle animals appear, well, not all of them, the blue filter makes an entire guffawing monkey's tribe emerge embroiling with the other creatures behind the dense vegetation.

    I love the jungle subject, with its exuberant, twisted and redundant vegetation, this is really amazed me with the kind of these arts.

    Thanks and looking forward for more images.

    To me, I love the experiment and the 'art' of the space, but I must say I as an interior space, I can't connect well with it. the art seems to compete with the rest of the space, and in a way, it makes everything look just a bit too chaotic.

    Low budget, high-intelligence project. Congratulations to the RGB team – you should deliver colorful plastic glasses at the entrance…
