UNCANNY Opening

alien-ship-547

Featuring work by Alfredo Salazar-Caro, Giselle Zatonyl, Leo Castaneda, Eva Papamargariti and Sebastian Schmieg. Curated by Helena Acosta.

UNCANNY explores 3D virtual environments where the dialectic relation between the viewer and the image creates immersive experiences that oscillate between real and virtual space. As Lev Manovich states, “the visual language in our modern period is characterized by the existence of another virtual space, another three-dimensional world enclosed by a frame and situated inside our normal space”. Through the work of five artistic approaches involving worlds of futuristic fiction, UNCANNY progressively takes us from the idea of visual environments to the physical sensorial experience of them – in Manovich’s words, from the screen to screenless.
