360: VIRTUAL REALITY ROOM
Year-round
Throughout the year, Zabludowicz Collection will be presenting Virtual Reality works in a dedicated environment. 360 gives a unique opportunity to see how artists are experimenting with this new technology in increasingly ambitious ways, creating immersive experiences that defy the conventional logic of film and video and evoke visceral sensations. Artists include Rachel Rossin and Jordan Wolfson. Further details of the programme will be announced in early 2018.

RACHEL MACLEAN
Sep 20 - Dec 16, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Rachel Maclean (b.1987, Edinburgh) has rapidly established herself as one of the most distinctive creative voices in the UK. Creating baroque, hyper-real worlds using green-screen video and computer animation, and playing many of the extravagantly costumed characters herself, Maclean spins razor-sharp fables that combine comedy and horror. Her work offers a powerful critique of contemporary society and its underlying fears and desires.

INVITES: TAMU NKIWANE
Nov 8 - Dec 16, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Combining an interest in appropriation and material improvisation, Tamu Nkiwane's recent projects have embarked on personal exploration of a family history that encompasses colonialism, resistance and migration.

360: MELODIE MOUSSET
Nov 22 - Dec 16, 2018 FINAL WEEK
In her 2017 virtual reality work, HanaHana 花華, Mousset collaborated with engineer Nam Baron to create a post-apocalyptic universe where users can teleport within an otherworldly landscape filled with monumental anthropomorphic ruins. The work is inspired by the Japanese manga series One Piece, in which character Nico Robin developed the power to endlessly reproduce her body parts after consuming the magic Hana Hana fruit (also called the devil fruit). In Mousset’s version, users can grow infinite chains of digital hands and build the architecture of their own world. The work is a playful, yet harrowing journey that explores the ongoing multiplication of our digital-selves and the possibility of extending it to the physical body. As the pharmacological capacity to technologically augment our bodies or even self-replicate becomes a contemporary reality, HanaHana 花華 provides a grotesque and beautiful experience questioning the implications on our mind, identity, body and senses
