At Photo London 2017, dslcollection presented a multi-dimensional exhibition. Alongside the collection’s own Virtual Reality museum, there was also a seminal video work from the collection created by Chen Chieh Jen, one of the most influential figures in the development of Taiwanese conceptual art. Chieh Jen’s video work takes its inspiration from Georges Bataille’s famous 1905 photograph of a lingchi execution. As a counterpart to the historical references in Chen’s video, dslcollection presented the first Virtual Reality platform for a private art collection. As a pioneer in the use of technology in the art world, dslcollection’s latest project allowed the public to experience the collection via VR with participants able to navigate themselves around the virtual museum and interact with the artworks directly.
