276 (On Colour) [Yellow]


Joseph Kosuth


Mediums: 44 neon, 7 high voltage transformers, gray nipples.
Location: the Georges Pompidou center, Paris (France).

The luminous light wall sculpture made by Joseph Kosuth of yellow neon words that form a text stretched over four lines. The content of the quote is indicated by reference to comment 276 on Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Studies translated into French by P. Klossovsky and is associated with the perception of colours. The essence of the statement is that each person perceives a certain colour in his way. Therefore, it would be wrong to talk about something decisively and unconditionally (not only about a specific yellow colour).
