A series of unique artistic installations are on display at the Mall for customers to view and create amazing memories through interacting with the art pieces
Doha, Qatar – 6 October 2020: Doha Festival City, Qatar's one and only choice for shopping, dining and entertainment, launched a unique interactive Perceptual Art display, offering an amazing opportunity for visitors to create enjoyable memories by taking photos and interacting with the unique art pieces.
As part of its commitment to the Arts community in Doha, Doha Festival City continuously seeks new ways to engage with shoppers and to make each of their visits unique. The Perceptual Art pieces will provide visitors with a fun and engaging visual display to interact with.
The experience encompasses a large 3D sticker on the floor and hanging art pieces, which include a mystery quote for visitors to decipher. The quote is composed of 50 artistic hanging plates, 16x3.5 m each, visible from different angles and parts of the Centre court of the Mall. The quote, however, will be only legible through the hole of the famous Torus sculpture icon, creating a fun challenge for visitors to discover.
The concept of the perceptual art via hanging pieces was first developed by the artist Michael murphy. Doha festival City brings this avant-garde art form to Doha.
Commenting on the exclusive installation, Robert Hall, General Manager of Doha Festival City, emphasized: “Doha Festival City thrives by engaging with the guests and contributing to Doha’s Art community. The goal is to create memorable moments for all our visitors and to feature innovative artistic exhibits.
