Escape from Pompeii
Merikeskus Vellamo, Kotka
31.3. – 1.10.2023
AR art as a part of the Escape from Pompeii exhibition.
Carine Fabritius builds miniature views in dollhouses transforming them into unreal spaces. She has contributed to this exhibition with a dollhouse installation completed with AR (augmented reality) technology and photography based on the installation. According to Fabritius, her works deal with the human-nature relationship, aging, loneliness and abandoned places. Her approach is surrealistic with a melancholic tone: “I present the dollhouse from an adult point of view, for adults as something on the verge of reality and imagination, just like childhood plays were experienced. My works have been inspired by books like Alice in Wonderland and Narnia as well as the films and TV series by David Lynch.”
