A stage always generates an abstract space, where something concrete takes place. The space receives his depth effect by mobile modules, partitions, perspective representations or separations. Thus interior and outside rooms can be imitated. Fantastic rooms can be created. A stage always serves as a backdrop for an actor who operates in direct or indirect integration of the scenery. The space only exists in that context: dazzeling by the spotlights like a soap-bubble. Podiums, walls and curtains shining in all colours of the rainbow divide principal theatre and side scenes and generate the impression of infinite width or intimate contiguousness. The eye of the beholder wanders by this strange, artificial nature, loses itself in shining surfaces, glides along the scenery in the depth which resolve in the darkness. The light moulds and generates dimensions. Sometimes It become manifest in luminous objects; light and space seemlessly merge. The artificial light reflects the reminiscence of the past: green and grey were the colours of the nineties - excerpt or or selfreferential construct? Perseverative materials are used: plywood and plastic, plexyglas and fabric are the basic elements the scene is made of. High-piled and screwed tightly or bent into shape to transform real in a visual two-dimensional space. Shortly before the audience enters the hall and the actor the stage, the colours, forms and the light silently gleame for the last time.

Colorium consists of two parts; a book and an assortment of Exponates.
