Winter at IMMA is delighted to present DREAMSPHERE a stunning new immersive installation devised by IMMA artist-in-residence Aoife Dunne. Hypnotically staged in the IMMA Courtyard, DREAMSPHERE engulfs spectators in a site-specific, multi-sensorial mindscape, creating a memorising and powerful experience not to be missed. This is the fourth artist commission in a series of outdoor commissions to celebrate IMMA’s 30th Birthday.

Exploring the notion of consciousness as a physical shared space in which to roam and reside, audiences are encircled by arresting sounds and screens. Viewers are sent on a surreal trip through the tumultuous mind; teasing prospects of shared consciousness whilst exploiting technology to stretch the psychological parameters of human experience.

Dunne’s long-standing penchant for blending physical and digital disciplines is conveyed by the onscreen projections. From the material splendour of her costuming to the tactility of obscure found objects, a miscellany of palpable textures is transported to this virtual dimension. The multi-sensorial feel of Dunne’s dream realm is heightened by the sonic idiosyncrasies which soundtrack the performer’s fevered envisioning, creating an increasing sense of mental overwhelm and entrapment already sparked by the work’s enclosed structure.

DREAMSPHERE epitomises the multi-hyphenate nature of Dunne’s practice: the installation’s myriad features, unlimited to sculpture, sound, performance and film, were single-handedly conceived by the artist, reflecting her tireless dexterity and flair for phantasmagoria.
