Currently showing at the Yota Space in St Petersburg is an immersive exhibition offering the chance for viewers to enter an artificially created ‘peasouper’, view portraits on the periphery of their vision, and witness a few of Brian Eno’s 77 Million paintings…
Held in a five-storey building in the heart of the city, the digital art exhibition is curated by Russian internet company Yota. It opened last weekend, with a musical event headlined by Hot Chip, and a piece of projection mapping, displayed across Mikhailovsky Castle. A film of the projection is shown below.
Visitors to the exhibition itself are first greeted by Volume, a collaboration between United Visual Artists and 3D from Massive Attack, which features 47 columns of light, each with their own audio output. Elsewhere is the aforementioned Peasouper, an installation by Jason Bruges which emulates London’s fog, and Alright Now, a piece of work commissioned specially for the exhibition from Chris Levine, which projects images onto the peripheral vision of visitors.

Onedotzero has curated an entire floor of the space, and brought together works by the likes of Hellicar + Lewis, AntiVJ, Quayola, and Cassette Playa & Kin Design. MSA Visuals is displaying his Body Paint installation – previously seen at Decode at the V&A in London – and Brian Eno is showing his generative artwork, 77 Million Paintings.
