Jeremy Couillard and Stephen Thorpe
Denny Dimin, New York
The British painter Stephen Thorpe and the American digital artist Jeremy Couillard have collaborated to create an environment suggestive of a video game arcade, with Thorpe’s vibrant paintings of arcade games in nature flanking the walls of the booth while Couillard’s video game Fuzz Dungeon streams in video installations at the centre. The game, a mash-up of dystopian images, text and ambient music by the artists Chris Parrello and Lobby Hotel, was previously streamed 24/7 from the basement of the gallery. It is being offered in an unconventional format, as a computer on which the game is downloaded.
