4. June - 14. August

Dansk tekst nedenfor

Char Davies developed her central works in the early years of VR (Virtual Reality) technology and they are considered some of the most landmark examples of artistic virtual reality in historical, aesthetic, technical, immersive and experiential perspectives – and now with a modern technical overhaul they appear even more innovative and fresh.

With a progressive digital image world as its focal point, the exhibition speaks to the slightly older generations who experienced the technical revolution since the lunar landing in 1969; for the middle-aged, who grew up with the proliferation of the PC and the first VR arcade games; as well as the young people who have never known a world that is not constantly online.

With Char Davies’ cult status, the exhibition also caters to those with deep insight into and interest in VR history. The exhibition will show the two works Osmose (1995) and Ephémère (1998), and will take the form of a total installation. In addition to presenting the Danes with one of the absolute stars of media art with this exhibition, Fotografisk Center also wants to create a platform for experience and debate about the digitalisation of our modern life.

______________

Char Davies udviklede sine centrale hovedværker i VR-teknologiens (Virtual Reality) barneår, og de bliver betragtet som nogle af de mest skelsættende eksempler på kunstnerisk virtuel virkelighed i et historisk, æstetisk, teknisk, immersivt og oplevelsesmæssigt perspektiv – og med en teknisk overhaling fremstår de endnu innovative og friske.

Med en avanceret digital billedverden som omdrejningspunkt taler udstillingen til de lidt ældre generationer, der oplevede den tekniske revolution siden månelandingen i 1969; til de midaldrende, som er vokset op parallelt med PC’ens udbredelse og de første VR-arkade-spil; samt de unge, som aldrig har kendt en verden, der ikke er konstant online.

Med Char Davies’ kultstatus henvender udstillingen sig desuden til dem med dyb indsigt i og interesse for VR-historien. Udstillingen viser de to værker Osmose (1995) og Ephémère (1998), og vil have form af en totalinstallation. Ud over at præsentere danskerne for et af mediekunstens absolutte stjerner ønsker Fotografisk Center med udstillingen at skabe en platform for oplevelse og debat om digitaliseringen af vores moderne liv.
