Wish You Were Here is an uncanny sideshow world of uncertainty where domestic objects collide with external and familiar landscapes, and oddball and absurdist beings travel nowhere, as if stuck in a behavioural loop. Kellie O’Dempsey’s immersive installation of collaged works on paper, projected animations and Augmented Reality fumbles for some sign of progress and connection. Visitors may experience the ‘outside’ and ‘inside’ blending as the ever-changing, moving world goes nowhere.
