The LAB Gallery presents 7thSENSE, an immersive, multihued installation by artist Aoife Dunne. This designer of experiences is best known for her inimitable aesthetic and site-specific colourfully chaotic work.
The pre-existing architecture that accommodates Dunne’s work is personally tailored in such a way to provide an extreme sensory experience by manipulating and transforming the physical properties of sound and vision. Aoife’s imaginative compositions are a product of accumulating, arranging, reusing and reworking layers of visual material.
7thSENSE explores the acoustic creation of space. The artist uses new and old electronics, found and distorted audio to create the illusion of spatial movement by designing the sensation of sounds that “move” around the visitor as they engage within the work. With language rooted in post-pop and post-internet, Aoife’s work submerges audiences into phantasmagorical, detail-driven virtual and physical worlds.
Aoife Dunne (b.1995) is an Irish based multi-disciplinary artist and art director, fusing sculpture, video, sound, performance and technology. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art Media from The National College of Art & Design, Dublin (2016). Since embarking on her idiosyncratic career, Dunne’s artistic, individualistic influence has crossed continents with colourful ease; her all-encompassing installations and touring exhibitions include the U.K, France, Italy, Canada and the U.S.A. This award-winning artist is currently working on several upcoming solo shows in Ireland, Puerto Rico & New York.
