Exhibition of interactive media installations: WRO on Tour
from the collection of the WRO Media Art Biennale
Artists: Paweł Janicki / Yaima Carrazana / Bartosz Konieczny / WROcenter Group
The exhibition is organized by WRO Art Center for Techfest Bombay in collaboration with IIT Bombay (Indian Institute of Technology).
The WRO on Tour exhibition presents a selection of interactive works from the international collection of the WRO Biennale. They comprise original media works along with contemporary artists, such as Paweł Janicki (artist was a guest artist of an Auditions- Sound Residency at Khoj, Delhi in 22.1.2013- 3.2.2013) and Yaima Carrazana, juxtaposed with interactive systems designed by the WROcenter Group to allow viewers to survey, experience and explore a wealth of archival material. Selected works and extensive documentation of the WRO Biennale 2013 is shown using innovative installation solutions and unique interfaces making the exhibition break traditional barriers between active art experience and passive documentation viewing. Users of interactive installations may control the projection mode and freely choose content of their preference using their own mobile devices (smartphones, tablets).
The WRO Media Art Biennale is the major forum for new media art in Poland, and one of the leading international art events in Central Europe. Since its inception in 1989, WRO has been presenting art forms using new media for artistic expression and communication, exploring current creative territories and building a critical perspective toward emerging issues in culture, art, society and technology. The WRO 2015 Test Exposure Biennale is a testing ground for creative, unconstrained investigations of art’s potential to react to the present and to anticipate future challenges.
TechFest WRO Art Center/The WRO Media Art Biennale will be represented at Techfest Bombay by Bartosz Konieczny and Dominika Kluszczyk.
