People who have saved this event:



For his week at fig-2, Shezad Dawood uses the text of his forthcoming novella as a conceptual starting point, weaving diverse strands of visual and literary references into an immersive virtual tapestry. ‘The Room’ is a digital animation that questions how we read and experience both the physical and the intangible. Mirroring the space of the ICA Studio, the animation takes the viewer on an epoch-spanning satirical journey into occult conspiracy and the true powers that govern the world. Alongside the interior/exterior space of the animation, Dawood is showing a new painting and accompanying woodcuts that chart an analogue, and analogous development of the project in more traditional media, as a fluid continuum of critical gestures and craft.
