Immerse yourself in artistic responses to this troubling time from the comfort of your quarantine.- Chris Godber
Lockdown is a virtual and interactive art exhibition curated and built by Tunnel artist Chris Godber.
The Lockdown exhibition explores the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. Featuring work created by the international artists collective, you can explore a bespoke virtual environment in your browser built with the HTML5 / WebGL game Engine PlayCanvas
Artists spoke about their work as Chris guided us through the virtual space, which looks much like the spaces we have exhibited in real life.
Unfortunately as I was talking about my work, which featured nudity (see below), Youtube actually cut us off due to “inappropriate content”! I was slightly flabbergasted as the work is clearly collaged and does not in anyway resemble a realistic body. I think all the nipples were just too much for the algorithm ha ha.
We have since appealed the decision, they now confirmed that it is indeed “art” and they have allowed us to keep the recording which you can find HERE
We aim to do another live stream event at a later date to give the other participating artists a chance to speak about their work, and give viewers the chance to ask questions and make comments in real time. Stay tuned or join my newsletter to stay updated.
