Our friends at the NOW Gallery are inviting you to a free preview of the WALALA X PLAY exhibition with free food, nibbles and a DJ.
WALALA X PLAY welcomes visitors to explore, examine and enjoy a labyrinthine network of corridors and enclosed spaces in a ‘temple of wonder’ created by Camille Walala and Walala Studio. A key part of this installation will be an imaginative puzzle which invites the solver to identify the inconsistencies between two otherwise identical images. WALALA x PLAY brings this concept off the page and into three-dimensional space, inviting visitors to linger and explore colour, shape and scale, contemplating formidable pattern to find the differences.
Visitors are encouraged to pass through the gallery and experience a range of spaces, some open, some tight and uncomfortable, some with dead ends. With walls of different heights, passageways of different widths, curved and zigzag paths, the installation addresses the idea of human scale. It ensures that visitors leave with not only a visual impression of the installation, but transformed by the experience of their own passage through it.
Mirrored panels reflect the space back on itself; suspended shapes introduce a feeling of lightness and playful disorientation – the installation is a journey that will challenge, reward and engage the visitor in equal measure.
