Sedition is pleased to present a solo exhibition by FIELD. The exhibition titled Violescence includes an impressive body of new and recent works that span across wearable sculptures, fashion film, virtual reality, and animation.
The exhibition centres around the new work Quasar, comprised of three wearable sculptures, each giving access to an interactive, audiovisual virtual reality experience.
Quasar is the first in a brand new series of physical-digital artworks titled Violescence, which explores the constant negotiation of opponent, archetypical forces: the aggressive, the sensitive, the inquisitive. What we observe in ourselves simultaneously appears to be the friction that drives society forward, a driving force of the universe. An ever-lasting struggle for inner balance, a state of zen – or for an understanding and stability between ourselves and others.
In Quasar, these forces appear as three personas: we imagine them as explorers, we try out their tools, we travel with them. We observe their physical and mental fights, we picture the moment of reaching a harmony between them.
Violescence is a continuation of FIELD’s ongoing exploration of new formats and platforms for digital art including immersive virtual reality experiences connected to sculpture, photography and video manipulated with visual effects, the blend between physical and digital environments and identities.
The exhibition also includes a display of the Forays series including four animations and four digital prints. The works represent landscapes, architecture and objects of the future as seen by the artist, and foreshadow the change in the perception of reality by future generations through the influence of contemporary technology.
Forms, materials, colours, mobility and sounds of each scene are explorations that illustrate how new technologies can fuse abstract and figurative forms, sensual perception and synaesthetic experiences.
The exhibition is kindly supported by leading technology brand LG Electronics. The artworks will be displayed on LG’s latest TVs, which fuse OLED technology and ULTRA HD 4K resolution to create the very best in picture quality. The exhibition will bring to life and celebrate the use of screen as a medium to display and enjoy artworks.
Violescence opens at London’s creative industries hub, The Hospital Club located in the heart of Covent Garden from 29-31 May 2015. An artist talk / exhibition tour will be held on Saturday, 30 May 2015 at 3-5pm at The Hospital Club Gallery. Join us for the private view on Thursday, 28 May 2015 from 7-9pm.
