DUBLIN.- Winter at IMMA is presenting DREAMSPHERE a stunning new immersive installation devised by IMMA artist-in-residence Aoife Dunne. Hypnotically staged in the IMMA Courtyard, DREAMSPHERE engulfs spectators in a site-specific, multi-sensorial mindscape, creating a memorising and powerful experience not to be missed. This is the fourth artist commission in a series of outdoor commissions to celebrate IMMA’s 30th Birthday.

Exploring the notion of consciousness as a physical shared space in which to roam and reside, audiences are encircled by arresting sounds and screens. Viewers are sent on a surreal trip through the tumultuous mind; teasing prospects of shared consciousness whilst exploiting technology to stretch the psychological parameters of human experience.

Dunne’s long-standing penchant for blending physical and digital disciplines is conveyed by the onscreen projections. From the material splendour of her costuming to the tactility of obscure found objects, a miscellany of palpable textures is transported to this virtual dimension. The multi-sensorial feel of Dunne’s dream realm is heightened by the sonic idiosyncrasies which soundtrack the performer’s fevered envisioning, creating an increasing sense of mental overwhelm and entrapment already sparked by the work’s enclosed structure.

DREAMSPHERE epitomises the multi-hyphenate nature of Dunne’s practice: the installation’s myriad features, unlimited to sculpture, sound, performance and film, were single-handedly conceived by the artist, reflecting her tireless dexterity and flair for phantasmagoria.

Digital installation artist Aoife Dunne creates visually-arresting, immersive environments fusing sculpture, video, sound, performance, technology, and costume. Fuelled by a fascination with digital and material culture, Dunne’s idiosyncratic touch is laced with references to the surreal and hyper-real. Exploring an ethos rooted in post-pop and post-internet, Dunne’s work envelops audiences in abstract, detail-driven virtual and physical realms. Her multi dimensional approach to crafting large-scale, experiential work is informed by a diverse creative background steeped in dance, performance, fashion and musical composition. Bulldozing through the boundaries of what conventional exhibitions entail, Dunne reaps continent-crossing acclaim for her inimitable aesthetic and site-specific, colourfully chaotic work. Aoife Dunne studied Fine Art Media at The National College of Art and Design and received her BFA in 2016. Since graduating, Dunne has held numerous exhibitions internationally, including The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, The Royal Academy of Arts London, and upcoming solo shows in Puerto Rico, New York, London, Dublin, Paris, and Tokyo.
