Curated by bubblebyte.org‘s Attilia Franchini, The Basement, a space reserved for emerging artists at Paradise Row, is hosting Leeds-based artist Harry Meadley‘s LEVEL 1, November 1 to December 6.
Presenting an interactive gallery experience, Meadley applies a video game format, specifically that of original ‘first-person shooter’, Wolfenstein 3D, in the form of digitally printed vinyl walls and textures of the game’s first level, along with “puzzles, items, secrets, hints and trophies” for navigating the space. In extending on his interests in notions of authorship, value and production, the exhibition will also be graded from the POV of a “mystery shopper”, anonymous to the gallery and set by artist and curator.
See the Paradise Row website for more details. **
