ArtVo Illusions REVIEW, Robina
ArtVo Illusions is Australia’s first immersive, ‘trick-art’ gallery, and is now open at Robina Town Centre. The idea of ArtVo is to explore an interactive art gallery filled with trick or illusion art. You can be creative and come up with your own poses, or follow the instructions to set up your own fail safe shot. There are 6 different zones, each with its own theme (think Jungle, Under the Sea, Glow room…) and the artwork allows you to come face to face with wild animals, scale rocky crevasses and surf the ultimate pipelines.
ArtVo is spread out over a large area on the upper floor of Robina, next to The Kitchens. You easily access the gallery via a staircase (an elevator is available for those who need it), and then the large rooms are open with space to wander about. Kids are in their element as they’re actually encouraged to touch the walls!! It is fun to see what artworks the different age groups are drawn to and how they interact with the props.
The staff are great, introducing you to the concept and helping you to set up your first couple of shots before leaving you to it. They are floating around the gallery as well, so if you need help or just want someone to take a photo for you, they are more than happy to oblige. You can go at your own pace and I would estimate you could spend anywhere between 1-2 hours there, depending on how many photos you wanted to take.
ArtVo Illusions was great fun for our family and while we were there we saw uni students, parents with young kids and pre-teens and some older people – it really is something for everyone to enjoy!
