HUGO celebrates at the Saatchi Gallery

HUGO’s unique exhibition brings together a group of multidisciplinary artists and designers from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Poland, Portugal, the Netherlands, Turkey, the UK and the USA for a one-off show. On display are video installations, interactive light projections, sound design, robotic murals and inflatable sculpture, which have been created exclusively for this exhibition and – on public display for the very first time.

The exhibition will provide a multisensory experience and visitors are invited to enter and interact with the works. Electropastete’s light projection maps movement on the wall and allows visitors to use their bodies to create a virtual painting, leaving a trace of themselves behind; Güvenç Özel’s pulsating kinetic sculpture explores the relationship between architecture and human movement through an interface that detects brain frequencies; Jun Fujiwara’s sound bottle captures sounds and rearranges them into a soundtrack; Jeongmoon Choi’s floor to ceiling UV installation maps out 3-D space using a fluorescent grid and visitors will be able to climb into Marco Barotti’s large-scale inflatable sculpture. Other works include Sonice Development’s robot, which will live paint a mural on the gallery wall through the duration of the exhibition.

HUGO: RED NEVER FOLLOWS is open from 31st July until 1st September. For further information click here.
