New Work - VR & Installation

Space Popular - The Portal Galleries

Wed-Sun: 10-5pm

Space Popular: The Portal Galleries will present new work and research by the multidisciplinary design practice Space Popular, led by Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg.

The exhibition, responds to the virtuality of Sir John Soane’s Museum by focusing on ‘the portal’: a door or threshold that grants entrance into another environment, whether physical or virtual. The desire to travel virtually across time, space and realms has been a recurring theme in the collective imagination – one that many have explored through fictional narratives.

Visitors will be guided through the magic and mechanics of virtual travel in an exhibition that bridges the technologies of Soane’s time and ours. Using Sir John Soane’s Museum as the point from which to begin this journey, Space Popular present their research on the portal through time and across media.
