Iga Kosicka On Copenhagen and Colours

What Colours and Melancholy
Have in Common

We meet the Polish artist Iga Kosicka at the iconic Copenhagen building Palads. It was painted in its current colour scheme by the Danish artist Poul Gernes in 1988 and is still undoubtedly the most colourful piece of architecture in the city.

Much like the Palads building, the artworks of Kosicka draw on a curious colour palette of cool pastels. A palette which might just fool the viewer, as the topics of Kosicka’s art harbours a sense of solitude — she uses her unique understanding of colour to explore and challenge the more melancholic subjects.
