Beginning with the idea of self-destruction as an existential question, new psychedelia, and the loss of the self, this immersive artwork asks questions regarding life and how we choose to live. MY TRIP 2023 also explores the abyss of the technological underground, the endless information consumed every day and the feeling of apathy and dullness that this technology consequently produces.
Co-commissioned by Outernet Arts and BFI London Film Festival, the work features characters that have recurred in Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard’s practice for over 25 years in addition to new mutant personalities created in collaboration with Acute Art. The artwork, presented as a fully immersive multi-screen installation at Outernet Arts, questions how we choose to live and explores the endless information consumed daily through a striking visualisation of a psychedelic experience.
