Depth of Perception – Oakville Galleries

18 January – 15 March 2015
Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens & at Centennial Square

What once seemed like a clear division between “real” and “virtual”—tangible things/bodies and spectral images/platforms—has all but broken down in recent years. The screen image—whether cinematic, digital or otherwise—has proven to be transformative, readily altering our perception of environments, objects and ourselves, while taking on a presence and palpability akin to “solid” objects. Since at least the 1960s, artists have mined the relationship between sculpture and screen to explore what Kate Mondloch describes as “objecthood and illusionism in tandem.” Depth of Perception considers how one’s vantage point on the world—and the integrity of physical, sculptural objects—have been altered by the screen’s roles as frame, window, mirror, and interface.

Featuring work by Trisha Baga, Peter Campus, Alex Da Corte, Anne de Vries, Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller, Hadley+Maxwell, Marisa Hoicka and Johnny Forever, Oliver Husain, Vishal Jugdeo, Owen Kydd, Linda Quinlan, and Judy Radul.

Depth of Perception is generously supported by Culture Ireland.
