The Colorfield Performance: hundreds of works, one field of colour

Hundreds of works, one field of colour. You won’t believe your eyes. The Colorfield Performance brings a gigantic colour spectacle to Sloten in 2018. International artists come to the Frisian town at the invitation of Dirk Hakze in order to create a unique work of art. From the Frisian town’s historic city wall, you get a brilliant view of the sea of colour on the meadow.

Community is... creating a huge work of art together. That was the thought of artist Dirk Hakze. He invited 1,919 international artists to work together on his project from May to September 2018.

The Colorfield Performance: hundreds of works, one field of colour

Hundreds of works, one field of colour. You won’t believe your eyes. The Colorfield Performance brings a gigantic colour spectacle to Sloten in 2018. International artists come to the Frisian town at the invitation of Dirk Hakze in order to create a unique work of art. From the Frisian town’s historic city wall, you get a brilliant view of the sea of colour on the meadow.

Community is... creating a huge work of art together. That was the thought of artist Dirk Hakze. He invited 1,919 international artists to work together on his project from May to September 2018.

A colourful whole

The artwork consists of 499 panels, set up in the shape of a triangle. All the panels are painted by the participating artists. They are free to make what they want, as long as they do not use black. Eventually all the individual works of art together form one big, colourful whole. A coloured field. A Colorfield Performance.

From Oerol to Schiermonnikoog to Sloten

The Colorfield Performance previously took place at Oerol festival in 1992, when 144 panels snaked through the dunes like a ribbon. In the year 2000, the beach on Schiermonnikoog had 1,000 panels set up in the form of a lily pad. The next highlight can be seen in Sloten in 2018.
