Olga Dziubak
The weakest and darkest colour 
June 28 - July 26, 2019

In her book titled The Color Purple, Alice Walker introduces the notion of womanism, which focuses on an ideology that deconstructs not only gender-based inequality but also issues related to oppression resulting from the class segregation of the society. Olga Dziubak juxtaposes historical facts and an analysis of shades of purple to create a broken down, abstract form of a banner, which can be referred to the symbols used by the suffragettes in early 20th century. Here, the purple is manifested in the form of a monumental banner. In its physical darkness it becomes stronger in space, just like the excluded groups gain power in the slow emancipation process. It was Isaac Newton that defined the purple as the weakest and darkest colour, which gains power here.
