The exhibition acts like a screen dump of Caspar Forsberg’s recent work with a particular yellow. He found it in the common Post-it® note and then extracted the colour using an NCS-scanner. The objects and materials painted in household paint merely act support for the yellow colour but also for texts, authored by a G-HOST whose intentions and qualifications shouldn’t be left unscrutinised. A key to the recent work is a scene in the BBC documentary on the bower birds that shows an elderly bird with a great collection of colourful objects and a younger bird trying to copy the elderly bird’s bower. The title of the exhibition suggests that the period when one has an open and perhaps naive outlook in life can be extended and wonders what this “impressionable age” does to one’s character and work if prolonged.
