SuttonBeresCuller and the Henry Art Gallery

Henry Art Gallery Installation from SuttonBeresCuller on Vimeo.

For the Henry Art Gallery, artist collective SuttonBeresCuller created an interactive installation that invites viewers, both on-site and online, to engage with the Henry’s collection in an entirely new way. For the Henry’s East Gallery, the three artists selected an array of paintings, prints, photographs, and other 2-dimensional works from the museum’s collection, installed ‘salon style,’ covering the walls floor to ceiling.

In front of this multi-faceted presentation, a custom-made apparatus transports a high definition camera along the x- and y-axes of this grid-like installation. The project continues in a viewing room in the Stroum Gallery. There, visitors can steer the camera remotely, selecting and zooming in on the details of any work of art in the East Gallery. The close-up views are projected in this space and then uploaded to the Web for many others to see. Over the course of the exhibition, visitors’ viewing selections were tracked and recorded to form a culminating, and cumulative, work of art (Source: Henry Art Gallery website).
