About the Exhibition
Immerse is a multisensory exhibition by Erica Herbert, Abbey Jamieson and Chayla Ueckert-Smith. The exhibition encourages the audience to interact with and explore the works of the three artists with all of their senses. In a traditional exhibition space, visitors are asked not to touch the artworks, which can limit how the works are perceived and understood. Each work in this exhibition, either ceramic or textile, requires physical connection on behalf of the participant to be activated and fully experienced.
Jamieson invites visitors to sit and enjoy a cup of tea with her work Interconnect, asking visitors to take a moment to be mindful. Herbert creates work centred around mental wellbeing and sensory exploration through her series Comfort Pods: a series of hand held textile objects designed with the intention for physical interaction. Ueckert-Smith explores sound capabilities of clay, and encourages participants to interact with her percussive clay instruments with curiosity.
This exhibition was postponed from 2020 due to Covid19
