The Overview Effect, Abby and Alice
4 July – 29 September 2019
Orleans House Gallery
Artists Abby and Alice explore the notion of Grottos in their new exhibition, The Overview Effect this summer. Through a series of Playtests inspired by video games, including Minecraft and “Walking Simulator” games, they have invited audiences throughout June to collaborate with them and shape the installation through self-led making and exploration of natural materials.
“We are imagining that we must build an alternative natural space for those who have left their current environment. Perhaps, due to climate change, our world has changed around us, perhaps we have left for somewhere else, but we must create shelter either way.
During the forming of the installation we are asking visitors to engage in this opportunity to improve the conditions of living and contribute to the shaping of the new world. We want to hear your priorities and concerns, your views will help us inform our plans for the environment we plan to build you in the future.”
Come, contribute and experience the results – new sanctuaries in alternative landscapes; where science, stories and making meet, and the drive to create is urgent.
