5 - 16 Sep, 2016
Opening Preview: Mon 5 Sep, 5 - 7pm
You are warmly invited to the opening preview of PLUNGE, a multi-sensory immersive installation by Jeremy Mayall.
PLUNGE explores new ways of experiencing and discovering art – by having visitors use all five of their senses. You will be tasting, smelling, touching and hearing (along with the usual 'seeing'). There will be a short artist talk and refreshments provided. PLUNGE really needs to be seen and experienced (it's hard to smell and taste unless you're there in person) so come on down for a good night out.
PLUNGE is the result of explorations and collaborations between experts in sight, sound, taste, scent and touch. Collaborators: Paul Bradley, Scott Granville, Mark Hamilton, Jamieson Hudson, Dan Inglis, Owen Mayall, Tony Nicholls, James Sutherland, Alexander Williams, Ben Woollen, and Demeter Fragrance Library.
The inspiration for PLUNGE comes from ongoing compositional experiments by Mayall, and his interest with a range of neuroscientific studies, which explore the concept that our senses do not work in isolation, rather they are deeply interconnected and influential on each other. The works, through the common thread of musical composition, also explore the perception shifts between our internal and external worlds. These works create an environment that engages the brains' own tendency to 'build worlds', find patterns and make connections.
PLUS - as if that wasn't enough, there will be a week of performance art events around Hamilton from 6th-10th September that accompany this exhibition. See individual event listings below.
