Färgfabriken is pleased to show you a new tape installation by Numen. The project is a collaboration between Färgfabriken and the director Tobias Rydin, who invited Numen to Stockholm. The art work is both an exhibition at Färgfabriken as well as the scenography for Tobias Rydins upcoming film Kim.

The for Färgfabriken site specific artwork TEJP Stockholm will take over the main hall like a huge spider web in which the audience are invited to climb and explore the installation and the room from all angles. But the artwork will also play another role as set design and shooting location for the Tobias Rydin full lenght film debut Kim. The artwork will through the two different expression get double exposure. In the film we get to follow the films main character building the artwork.
