“Inspace… In the ruins of the city world”
Inspace.ar is an exhibition of paintings weaving poetic narratives with augmented reality. The A.R. application implemented by the artist brings alive the stories within the paintings. By moving around the works with his mobile device (Android or iOS), the visitor discovers the spatial, narrative and sound dimensions.
Each painting reveals the universe of a figure (a character or an entity): the granite rock, the Buddha, the dragonfly and so on. This universe consists of twelve paintings, twelve stories, twelve figures, all in search of their own truth. Inspace, a considerable achievement in the creative use of technology, opens up new and unusual possibilities for viewers to engage with paintings.
Although the work is still in progress, the artist has generously contributed three paintings and their A.R. Representations to this exhibition.
Note: The exhibition is produced by B2Fays Creation & Fil d’Ariane Association, with the support of the Alliance Française of Hyderabad and the Institut Français in India. Special thanks are offered to Bari Kumar (artist) who lent his voice to this series, and to Samuel Berthet (curator) who contributed to the project.
