"Big Game Hunting"
Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer, Finn Marchant
Opening: Wednesday 4 October, 6-8pm
Dates: 4 – 28 October 2017
"Big Game Hunting" examines the disjuncture between the material and the digital and how this separation has engendered an anxiety of the digital. Through the deconstruction and materialisation of fantasy role-playing video games Big Game Hunting interrogates how video games might shape and reflect human emotion, affect and desire.
