Date: 5-9 September 2022
Curators: Louise Latter, Angel Leung
Co-organised by BOM & Videotage, under Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022
As part of the Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022 BOM & Videotage hosted an intensive 5 day virtual residency for two artists (one based in the UK and one in Hong Kong) who are working in or inspired by game art. The chosen artists Ama Dogbe and Yarli Allison worked with the theme Virtual Bodies. This offered them a wide ranging and generous starting point to expand and develop work.
Ama and Yarli worked closely with BOM Head of Immersive Louise Latter and Videotage Curator Angel Leung who guided them through an intensive week of working, encouraging and supporting experimentation and development of ideas, rather than focusing on a final artistic output. Their work in progress can be viewed below. On Thursday 29th September they will participate in a discussion looking at the processes, ideas and discoveries made by both artists during the residency period.
