Step inside a whole new world

Have you ever wanted to take a gondola ride through the canals of Venice? Would you like to visit the pyramids in Egypt or take a photo next to the leaning tower of Pisa?

While you might never visit these locations, a new gallery in Docklands allows you to take amazing photos with these and other landmarks.

ArtVo at Harbour Town opened last month and offers visitors the chance to place themselves into a range of scenes including international tourist destinations, fantasy worlds and famous artworks.
Described as an “interactive 3D art gallery”, ArtVo is the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

ArtVo director Hasan Celik said similar galleries existed in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Korea.

According to ArtVo general manager Elroy Dewitt, the Docklands gallery features hundreds of hand-painted images that allow visitors to immerse themselves in the different scenes.

“Taking amazing photographs is the main objective,” Mr De Witt explained.

“We will be putting up some posters to ensure visitors will know how to enjoy the visuals and how to take the photographs from using the best angles and poses.”

The large-scale works have been painted directly on to the walls and floors of the gallery, while additional sculptural elements allow visitors to step into the artworks.

A team of 14 Korean artists created the artworks over 60 days, using 500 litres of paint to complete the task.

The gallery will be a permanent installation at Harbour Town and Mr De Witt said he hoped ArtVo would provide a new experience for locals and visitors.

“We hope to encourage lots of visitors to help Docklands become a great tourist destination,” Mr De Witt said.
