Plato’s cave at the Earl

Sue Henderson

Plato’s Cave transforms the Earl Arts Centre foyer into an immersive environment where visitors can eat, drink and question the nature of perception and reality. Sue Henderson’s work creates illusory 3D surfaces that reference geological structures, rock surfaces and perceptual experiences in natural environments. The installation suggests imaginative possibilities, and the effect of education, or the lack of it, on our nature.

Plato’s Cave is part of an ongoing international series of site-specific large-scale installations in which Henderson explores how paintings might operate in relation to architecture and places. Each site has unique physical qualities and uses which contribute to the development, meanings and readings of the work.
