Polarised is a new collaborative exhibition by Laura Buckley and Kim Coleman developed during a seven week residency at Block 336. The exhibition will be held in the main exhibition space.

About

If sunglasses expose our anxieties around seeing and being seen, Kim and Laura’s work, Polarised, draws this particular contemporary phenomenology into focus. In Polarised we are presented with lenses that alternately allow or block views into an installation, simultaneously reflecting and refracting projected moving image in a space, incorporating sculpture, lighting and sound. Here the artists present light as a form of control, with a role both in social and cultural posturing, as well as in the dynamics of looking and being looked at, riffing on the formal relationships and cultural connotations embedded into the shaded gaze. This is a work that destabilises the act of looking, one that forces us to see it in a different light. In Polarised Kim and Laura create a carefully constructed enterprise, a world of light and sound where our experience of it is electrifying.
