Join Luke King for an Auslan tour of Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds.
This is the first exhibition in the world to feature the extraordinary work of Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher in dialogue with the work of acclaimed Japanese design studio nendo.
A master of optical illusion, Escher created some of the most iconic images of the twentieth intriguing viewers with visual puzzles involving space, time and the everyday world. Explore impossible architectural structures, endless staircases and transformations of form and pattern.
nendo has taken cues from Escher’s manipulation of space and his use of shifting perspectives to give an exhibition experience that transcends traditional gallery displays, expressing Escher’s world in a three-dimensional reality.
nendo’s signature motif is the form of a house which appears throughout the exhibition in varied forms mirroring Escher’s manipulation of patterns as well as creating innovative displays for Escher’s work and building a physical path for the audience experience.
