Pejman Foundation: Argo Factory is proud to present “Elsewhere,” an interactive VR installation by artists Hayoun Kwon (South Korea/France) and Balthazar Auxietre (France) curated by Emad Aleebrahim.
With the use of VR technology, the artists tend to create poetic experiences based on human memories. A direct and reciprocal connection between the audience and the artwork. In this interactive installation and by using these VR headsets the participants will have the chance to immerse themselves in multifaceted experiences. Personal experiences are not in front of images but physical ones inside them!
The exhibition will be set up as “installations” inside empty spaces – which the curator calls “time capsules” – and every VR experience will be confined to one of these spaces. While waiting to be immersed in these VR experiences, the audience in some other way and from the “outside world” are able to take part in the experiences of the participants before them.
Elsewhere is made possible through the generous support of the French Embassy in Tehran and is supported by Samsung.
