Random International: Rain Room

This exhibition runs from Wed, 2nd Jan 2013 to Sun, 3rd Mar 2013

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 23rd Jan 2013

Random International invites you to experience what it's like to control the rain. Visitors can choose to simply watch the spectacle or find their way carefully through the rain, putting their trust in the work to the test.

More than the technical virtuosity necessary for its success, the piece relies on a sculptural rigour, with the entire Curve transformed by the monumental proportions of this carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water.

Random International are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experimental artworks come alive through audience interaction and staged performance.

Random International are represented by Carpenters Workshop Gallery, London and Paris.
