The Saatchi Gallery’s upcoming exhibition will explore the distortion of human perception.

On display from the 15th March, Kaleidoscope will feature nine contemporary artists from across the globe who work in a variety of mediums to explore the concept of distortion through sequences of colourful works.

The centre piece of the exhibition will be Laura Buckley’s interactive large-scale kaleidoscope Fata Morgana. This will be the first time the immersive piece will be on display to the public and invites visitors to be absorbed into the work through its mirrored walls, changing imagery and audio.

Other artists to be included in the display are Mia Feuer, who examines the post-natural landscape and our effect on it to Pierre Carreau’s  emotionally  charged  depictions  of  waves,  Tillman Kaiserwhose dynamic paintings and sculptural works are meditations of history, style and form; Whitney Bedford whose tempestuous seascapes act  as  motifs  for  connecting  the  past  and  the  present,  and  the  young  painter  Florence Hutchings who will be presenting a series of vivid still-life paintings inspired by everyday life.

The exhibition will concentrate on  our relationship with our surroundings and is set to ask us to reconsider the way we engage with our environment and art with our senses.

Kaleidoscope will be on display at the Saatchi Gallery from the 15th March until the 5th May.
