(Closed Monday 17 February)
Ikon presents Care(less) (2019), a highly original immersive 360-degree VR film by British artist Lindsay Seers. The work uses the hallucinatory quality of VR technology to convey an embodied experience of what it is to be in an ageing body. This OPCARE artist commission responds to new research by the University of BirminghamUniversity of Brighton and University of Lincoln, supported by the Wellcome Trust Enrichment Fund, into the experiences of older people receiving care they pay for themselves. The installation is part of an ongoing exploration around the ethics of care in partnership with Fabrica gallery, Brighton and Frequency Festival.
