Julian Opie creates new digital artwork 'Village.'
30 April 2020Julian Opie has created a new digital artwork entitled Village. (2020). Struck by the maze-like network of streets in a small South Western French town where roads and houses are of uniform design, Opie was inspired to make Village., a continuous computer animation intended to be experienced digitally. Accompanied by a haunting soundscape composed by collaborator, Max Richter, the film takes the viewer on an intense, immersive, labyrinthine and seemingly endless journey. The subject recalls Opie's series from the mid-nineties, Imagine you are walking, notably included in his major solo exhibition in 1993 at the Hayward Gallery. Julian Opie, Village., 2020, Continuous computer animation, Music by Max Richter.
