Explore the exhibitions at FACT, 88 Wood Street, Liverpool, L14DQ

Gallery 1: ZEE, Kurt Hentschlager

Showing for the first time in the UK, ZEE is an abstract luminous landscape where visitors are taken on their own mind-altering sensory journey.

immersive audiovisual environment / artificial fog / stroboscopes / pulse lights / surround sound

Kurt Hentschläger has spent a lifetime creating artworks that push the viewer into a state of sensory overload. ZEE is no exception. As one visitor put it: “It is really hard to say something smart about something so sensual”. Variously described as “insane”, “like entering Heaven” and “another planet”, ZEE is an installation of fog, light and sound that will transform Gallery 1 at FACT into an out of body experience. An installation “like death” that has audiences struggling to believe the evidence of their senses, this manifestation of Hentschläger’s distinct and mind-altering artwork is a UK first.

Due to the sometimes disorienting nature of ZEE, suspended ropes are on hand to guide first timers through the installation. Visitors are nevertheless free to roam the exhibition space if they wish.

“...this is the world as viewed by a dying robot clone from the inside of a Turner landscape painting...”

Claudia Hart

Please note: you will be required to sign a disclaimer before entering ZEE. Visitors must be over 18 for this reason, if you appear to be younger than this we may require proof of age. Visitors will only be available at FACT's discretion.

Co-commissioned by: OK-Center Linz and Wood Street Galleries, Pittsburgh

I went yesterday. You are in a room full of smoke and stand or walk around whilst you are bombarded by strobe lighting etc, I suppose like an acid trip, though I have no experience of that.

People with certain medical conditions are advised not to go in (such as epilepsy, heart conditions,asthma, high blood pressure etc, so you have to book in person.I am on medication to control my blood pressure so I decided to chance it as you have the option of leaving quickly.

Full instructions are given beforehand and if you need further info contact FACT on 0151 707 4444 or visit their website.
The gallery is open noon to 6pm Mon-Fri, 11 to 6pm Sat and noon to 6pm Sundays.
Entry is quarter to and quarter past the hour but I would think best to go early to make sure of getting in.Numbers are limited perhaps fifteen each session.

It is only a ten minute experience but one of the best things I have ever done.Don't miss it.

Zee has been extended until 27/Nov/2011

Would be interested if any Forum members have been to see what they thought of it. I was astounded how some people are so creative and clever. It's mind-boggling!
