K8L35 premiere multimedia art installation – The Cave
Kate MacDonald & Les Sears (K8L35) | Hamilton Bank Building
“After Altamira, all is decadence.” – Picasso on paleolithic cave paintings
The cave was the original art installation. Join collaborative artists Kate MacDonald and Les Sears (K8L35) at their studio in the Hamilton Bank Building for a multimedia installation. Incorporating two and three-dimensional artworks with light and multichannel projections, K8L35 examine symbolic behaviour through Plato’s Allegory of the Cave as a metaphorical bridge between cave painting and contemporary art, asking: if modern reality is socially constructed through communication – what do the symbols we recognize say about us?
