For ‘Suffering Arcadia - REMOTE’ Annabel McCourt will place a replica of a drone control station in the gallery for visitors to interact with. This installation plays devil’s advocate, challenging our ideas around power and control: are we completely detached from the wider world, more insulated, less connected, fragmented or are we ultimately in charge? Accompanied by readymade ‘THEATRE of War’, the work provides the physical conduit to examine our preconceptions, our imagination and ultimately our moral code.
Working closely with the University’s specialist departments, ‘REMOTE’ will evolve over the duration of the exhibition to encompass a number of augmented reality scenarios.
An interactive maquette of ‘REMOTE’ will be on display at Scarborough’s Rotunda Museum throughout the period of the exhibition.
REMOTE was made possible by St Hugh’s Foundation for the Arts, which awarded Annabel its Main Award in 2018. The registered charity has made over 100 awards to artists and arts organisations in the City of Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
