"Walk in, penetrate, cross the moving images to get inside the cylinder. You’ll be engulfed by images – a captive, but also a creator." - Ron Arad
The epic floor-to-ceiling artwork Curtain Call is made of 5,600 platinum-cured silicon rods and is suspended from an 18-metre diameter ring, providing a canvas for films, live performance and audience interaction. The curtain’s content, comprising images and films, is simultaneously and seamlessly projected to be viewed both from the inside and outside of the curtain, creating an almost shadow free lm that could be walked through and experienced in 360°.
The artistic content of Curtain Call was produced through a series of exciting collaborations with leading artists including Mat Collishaw, Christian Marclay, SDNA, Ori Gersht, Babis Alexiadis, Hussein Chalayan, Greenaway & Greenaway, Gabriel Klasmer & Shira Klasmer, Javier Mariscal & David Shrigley, Kutiman, Daniel Landau, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Universal Everything, and KIMA. Live performance events have included Circus Call, London Contemporary Orchestra, Lail Arad & Cats Eyes.
In 2012 the project travelled to Jerusalem. Renamed ‘720 Degrees’ it was situated within the Isamu Noguchi garden of the Israel Museum, and included a series of new locally produced film pieces and live events. This August, the project has returned to the place of it’s 2011 debut, The Roundhouse, for the venue’s 50th Anniversary celebration.
