Hotel Kalifornia; Heidi Locher

Hotel Kalifornia, by illustrious architect and artist Heidi Locher, is an immersive exhibition centering around a short film – filmed within a modern hotel room – investigating hidden memories, exploring haunting transitional moments, cathartic release and ultimately redemption. Powerful stuff, and all the more claustrophobic and compelling in its surroundings. The exhibition at Londonnewcastle features projections, photography and a short film; and sees Locher continue to tread the boundaries of her disciplines.

Hotel Kalifornia; Heidi Locher, Londonewcastle Project Space, 28 Redchurch Street, London E2 7DP; Running 9th – 27th November. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 11:00am – 7:00pm and Sunday, 12:00pm – 6:00pm. Free entrance

Get yourself down there this evening and you can munch on some Bosco and Bee wood-fired pizzas whilst admiring the work of these daring digital art pioneers…
