X – Y – Z

Exhibiting Artists: Mustapha Azeroual (FRA), Robert Covington (USA), Ravi Purohit (UK), Chloe Humenko (UK), Polly Merredew (UK) and Thomas Hämén (SWE)

X-Y-Z  is an exhibition that explores 3D through the work of international artists utilising age-old techniques such as lenticulars, autostereograms, stereograms, holography and anaglyph 3D. Here these classic and nostalgia-inducing methods which offer us the illusion of depth and three-dimensionality are embraced and championed.

Using these techniques the artists play with the notion of perception and sensation, giving us an opportunity to view the world in a unique and playful way. Each artist tackles different concepts within their work, from Thomas Hämén’s series Metadata (stereogram) inspired by the computer generated Magic Eye® autostereograms from the 1990s, to Chloe Humenko’s stunning filmic anaglyphic 3D photographs, evoking memories of classic 3D cinema.

The resulting exhibition takes us on a nostalgic journey through the recent history of 3D technology and how it is being applied creatively to contemporary art practice.
