Wish you were here

4 May 2024 - 13 Jul 2024

Installation of Wish you were here exhibition featuring ghostly shapes and neon lights.

Wish you were here began as a response to the stop-start movement of COVID-19 by artist Kellie O’Dempsey.

The exhibition transforms the monotony of pandemic life into a mesmerising carnival of ghostly shapes, and otherworldly creatures.

Using video, light installation and augmented reality, O’Dempsey invites you into an immersive space that celebrates the joy of the everyday. 

The exhibition includes sound by Mick Dick and AR Animation by Helena Papageorgiou. Kellie is represented by Jan Manton Gallery.

Kellie O’Dempsey will be in conversation with Dr Louise R Mayhew at Winter Nights on Saturday 8 June, 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
