Images, objects, sounds and movements call up hidden worlds and almost-forgotten things at the Immersive Worlds contemporary art exhibition at the Spanish Barn, Torquay
Much of the work is interactive, demanding the viewers’ attention, and includes paranormal investigation, responsive kinetic installation, video installation, painting and sculpture all seek to immerse you.
The title of the exhibition Immersive Worlds hints at audience engagement and interactive play, and the curator (James Derwin) has brought together some of the most interesting and experimental art practitioners from across the West Country – contemporary artists whose works build on these ideas in very different ways.
And the artists include James Derwin, Phil Dixon, Linda Khatir, Michele Whiting, Clem So, Rik Pitman, Beth Jenkins, Carl Cashman, Sarah Baker and Helen Tranckle.
• Immersive Worlds Contemporary Art Exhibition at the Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey, Thursday, April 14 to Tuesday, April 26. Open Monday to Sunday, 10am-5pm.
