Feelers is an exhibition of three large-scale installations designed to test the different senses. Red’s Cave by French video artist Judith Josso in collaboration with Kate Ross is a large screen close up of a pair of laughing mouths slowed down to dramatic and surprising effect. Architectural practice Pletts Haque have built a beautiful glowing smell pavilion in which the viewer can conjure up new olfactory delights. Web based artist Carolyn Black provides a petite surreal eyeful in her video loop A Case of Vanity.
