Standing in the pristine Gazelli Art House, an art space on Dover Street in Mayfair, London, it might seem that the future is already here. There are no canvases, photographs or pieces of art hung up on the gallery’s white walls. Instead, there are four white headsets and sleek controllers that wouldn’t look out of place at a video game convention.
“Enter Through the Headset 2” is the second digital exhibition that the Gazelli Art House has put on. The gallery also runs a digital residency called gazell.io. The five installations in this exhibition don’t use virtual reality uniformly; one barely uses it at all. But the majority are dazzling, surreal scenes from what seems like another planet.
