Anise Gallery at the Tate Exchange

Last week Jacek Ludwig Scarso turned the Tate Exchange into an Observation Nest for his week-long work of immersive theatre, The Pecking Order.

As part of a series of talks discussing the issues raised within the work, our very own Jacky Jubert, Joseph Robson and Sylvia Koloszewska, lead real-time artist at AVR London, joined Scarso and scenographer Jelmer Tuinstra from The Cass to discuss the project’s inception and technical development.

Sylvia, who collaborated with Scarso on the installation’s VR component, explored the growing interest in VR technology in the art world, for its ability to provide audiences with a radically different shift in perspective. Joseph discussed how this interest can be influenced by the use of VR technology in other fields — particularly architecture — and Jacky explored the difficulties and potentials that come with curating this kind of work for audiences that may not be so familiar with the technology and its capabilities.

We’d like to thank everyone who came to the talk on Friday and to the Tate Exchange during the week. It is always a pleasure to work with Jacek and we look forward to more collaborations in the future!
