Technicolour, a craft-orientated, sculptural collection by Peter Saville, visually and haptically translates the industrial processes in textile production. The collection’s name relates to the spectrum of colours commonly used to mark flocks of sheep – bold hues that are spectacularly incongruous in pastoral settings. The collection comprises an upholstery textile, two curtains and three rugs.
Technicolour reflects that, for many years, Peter Saville has been intrigued by the increasing use of seemingly random colours for the markings of grazing sheep in the landscape. He has likened this to rural graffiti.
Peter Saville: “I am excited by how the collection brings the industry of the land, in raw form, into the living environment. The collection elements offer an experience of texture and colour, ranging from the expressionistic to the subliminal.”
