Artist Kim Leutwyler presents a preview of her augmented reality and painting exhibition portraying queer womxn, including those who are cisgender, trans, non-binary and gender diverse.
At first sight, attendees will be greeted with 6 oil paintings in the gallery. They can then immerse themselves in an augmented reality experience using smartphones or tablets. Imagery and sound will float in the room around the paintings, including video interviews with the portrait sitters, still images of important moments from their lives, time-lapses of the portraits being painted, audio soundscapes and more. Leutwyler’s ‘sitters’ each engage with the politics of identity, community and activism in their own unique way.
The gallery is open and adhering to social distancing measures.
The exhibition can also be viewed online. View exhibition here.
