In an atmosphere unlike any other, a multi-faceted tale is unfolding inside the walls of the medieval Spanish Barn – images, objects, sounds and movements call up hidden worlds and almost-forgotten things.
Much of the work is interactive, demanding the viewers’ attention – without which, it will sink quietly back into the dark walls of the barn… 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 Westcountry – contemporary artists whose works build on these ideas in very different ways.
Artists include: James Derwin, Phil Dixon, Linda Khatir, Michele Whiting, Clem So, Rik Pitman, Beth Jenkins, Carl Cashman, Sarah Baker and Helen Tranckle.
