(Play)ground-less are working with games engine focused and digital arts studio Werkflow to build a space within a space: an immersive sound installation in the exhibition space that connects into a VR space and vice versa.
As the viewer enters the virtual environment s/he will be taken through a fictional narrative that the artists will deliver remotely in real time, through image, text and sound uploads in order to explore ideas of territorialisation and representation. Direct communication into the VR space will also be generated by the artists via a live audio stream from each of their respective cities.
(Play)ground-less is Sarah Bayliss, Ninna Bohn Pedersen, Belén Zahara and María Angélica Madero, a group of four artists based in four different cities - Copenhagen, Bogotá, Madrid and London. Their being-in-relation evolves through changing media and technology, following a personal method based on tactics and conversations from which their work eventually unfolds. With an interest in tactility and language their practice delves into ideas of play, non-knowledge and improvisation.
(Play)ground-less: hollow tongues, forms the 4th assembly of the Itinerant Assembly project. Itinerant Assembly is curated by Alice White, Chloe Hodge, Hannah Zafiropoulos, Rosie Hermon, Tiffany Leung and Xiaoyi Nie as part of the Curating Contemporary Art programme Graduate Projects 2017, Royal College of Art, working in partnership with Gasworks.
