We are all familiar with the color green and for the modern human being it is hard to imagine, that it would be deadly, to get the color on your walls. Never the less, this was the case back in late 17 and 1800.

After 1775, White cobber arsenic was used in the production of green soap, candles, fabric, toys, grocery and wallpaper. In 1875 it became possible to produce wallpaper mechanical and therefore affordable for the Victorian middle class. Their homes where decorated with green wallpaper containing up to 1gram of arsenic per m2, that alone enough to kill hundreds.

The color green runs through the exhibition ”…& deadly decor”, which contain 18 oil paintings on canvas and green plexiglass. The motifs are depictions of persons, who have a historical connection to the knowledge of colors or the story about the arsenic wallpaper.
