On October 10, the VR experience Hilma af Klint – The Temple premiered at Koko Camden i London, and was shown in Paris a week later. Hilma af Klint – The Temple is a digital art work inspired by the artist’s vision to create a building to house her most important works.
Hilma af Klint dreamt of a spiral shaped building to house her most important work, but the idea never materialised. More than a century later, af Klint’s vision has been translated into a VR experience where some of her most important paintings come alive.
Hilma af Klint – The Temple is produced in collaboration with Acute Art and premiered at Koko Camden during the Frieze Art Fair. The virtual reality work Hilma af Klint – The Temple is a 12-minute VR experience inspired by the artist’s vision to create a spiritual building to house her most important works. The VR work includes 193 of Hilma af Klint’s paintings in a format that transcends time and space and makes a significant portion of her artistic output available to the public.
After that, Hilma af Klint – The Temple was shown at Institut Suédois in Paris where the director Ewa Kumlin gave a welcome speech. Marika Stolpe, CEO of Bokförlaget Stolpe, Daniel Birnbaum, Artistic Director at Acute Art and Chris Dercon, Directeur Grand Palais, also gave speeches.
The release for Hilma af Klint catalogue raisonné was held at the Swedish embassy in London.
