Carl Johanson
Coloring page of giant memory

In partnership with PHAKT Centre Culturel Colombier / Lendroit éditions

Come and colour in Carl Johanson’s poetic and playful picture book on your own or with friends and family. MEMO combines memory games, children’s books and picture encyclopaedias to play with representations of objects, from the absurd to the ridiculous. The images are always recognisable but in need of reinventing. Inspired by the rules of the game “Pairs”, the artist has set up a few thousand drawings facing in on the wall of his studio. Visitors pick two images at random, turn them over and colour them in as they wish before repositioning them facing out. The resulting ensemble gradually takes collective shape like a constellation, to create original, interesting and unexpected combinations.
MEMO – The Colouring Book has been designed by the artist as a compilation of his studio drawings into an original colouring encyclopaedia. MEMO is a book for looking at, playing with, discovering and, of course, colouring. This humorous and poetic album will delight colouring lovers of all ages with creative and playful activities for every day. The book is available for sale to continue the fun after the exhibition.
