A series of visually stunning exhibitions are set to light up The Public in West Bromwich this winter, including work by cutting edge video artists, AntiVJ.
Drawing inspiration from the Icelandic volcano which wreaked travel havoc across Europe in 2010, AntiVJ’s Eyjafjallajökull, is a stunning 3D projection that challenges the audience’s senses. As visitors are mesmerised by the constantly changing projection and optical illusions, they question their perception of space, depth and distance.
Alongside startling works such as Eyjafjallajökull, The Public will be running a residency programme for a range of artists, young people and graduates to develop new work. Working with AntiVJ, the week long programme will provide a valuable platform to learn new skills and experiences, and unique opportunity to showcase work to a mass audience.
On Wednesday 7 November at 6.30pm Joanie Lemercier from AntiVJ, an artist at the cutting edge of technology, will be hosting a special talk about his many collaborations across the globe. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further exhibitions in Light Up Digital include, Light and Shade, a selection of inspiring light themed short films selected by KINO 10, Light Up Pedal Power, in which visitors are able to light up thousands of tiny LED lights using a unique hand operated dynamo, and Lights, an open exhibition for local photographers.
Light Up Digital will take place at The Public from 7 November 2012 to 3 February 2013, Wednesday to Saturday, 10am – 5pm and Sunday, 11am – 3pm, and is free to visit.
