Opening - Deep|Dark|Dank / I'm Terribly Sorry
Alongside of the exhibition I’m Terribly Sorry, Rachel MacLean invites the artist Ben Wheele for a presentation of Deep | Dark | Dank.
I'm Terribly Sorry is a virtual reality video set in a dystopian British urban landscape filled with oversized Union Jack-emblazoned tourist merchandise. Several privileged city dwellers approach the user, each of whom has a large smartphone for a head. Initially benign and apologetic, they tell convoluted stories and attempt to elicit money, with their protestations soon becoming more sinister, finally leading to a bloody tragedy... or not.
Deep | Dark | Dank is an immersive installation by artist Ben Wheele. Using a range of digital animation techniques, Wheele constructs a fantastical world of sinister creatures, dark humour and grotesque body horror. His work is often found lurking in the ‘dark side of Youtube’, a little-known zone of mysterious videos, which generate all sorts of conspiracy theories and terrified reaction videos online.
