The exhibition #fuckreality presents artistic strategies that challenge the promises of virtual and augmented reality. The featured artistic practices employ the related technologies in ways contrary to their intended purposes and reveal new aesthetic fields, thereby reflecting changes in our understanding of reality, corporeality, and the experience of space.
The works shown at Gallery Šira and Tunnel Grič within Animest Zagreb 2019 explore the interfaces between the real and virtual realm and use various media formats to expand perception into a multimodal and sensomotoric experience. Augmented and mixed reality environments, works on head-mounted VR displays and videos allow visitors to delve into digitally generated spaces, which confront them with different aspects of presence and immersion.
