So Far, Still So Close
26.04 - 28.04.2019
Synthesis Gallery's upcoming exhibition explores the altering passage of time with two VR art works by Yu Hong and Nikita Shalenny produced by Khora Contemporary. Whereas Yu Hong's 'She’s Already Gone' explores the role of an individual in history from the perspective of a female artist, Nikita in his 'The Bridge' raises questions about the possibility of a personal escape.
Both artists create drawings and paintings by hand that are later transferred into the virtual space to become animated artworks. ‘So far, still so close’ is curated by Tina Sauerlaender (Radiance VR) and George Vitale (Synthesis Gallery) and is the first collaboration between Khora Contemporary (Copenhagen, Denmark), Radiance VR and Synthesis Gallery (Berlin, Germany).
