NOUD
SLEUMER

Noud Sleumer is a conceptual designer who's role is to critique ‘the act of making’. Within self-initiated and explorative projects his focus is trained on methods of deconstruction and reduction. Simplicity is the tool that underlies these approaches and enables Sleumer to create new playgrounds of creativity, in which we can collectively re-examine our relationship to man-made matter.

Within the monumental protected city of Arles, with its established colors, the non-public roof terraces are a space for color freedom. This project questions how much space there is for individual additions within the established color rules. By analyzing the roof terraces of protected houses via Air-BNB, an insight is given in what way the citizens are (not) using this color freedom, and questions what alternatives are possible within this strictly regulated environment. How much freedom do you have when your possessions are part of an established system?

The Color Fan Decks have been part of the exhibition Colour Geographies at the Luma Foundation in 2017 in Arles, France. Afterwards the foundation purchased them; since then they are part of the Luma studios as a tool to use for artists in residence.
