“Cyber Corporeality” at SCAG Contemporary

Rapid advances in information and communication technology are revolutionizing our everyday life. Objective reality and the virtual world continue to merge into one another, blurring the thin line that divides them. And that’s just a brief snapshot of the complex reality in which we live.

Technology is developing rapidly, faster than we thought. And this speed is what makes it so challenging for us humans and our corporeal limitations. It seems as though humanity has reached the peak of evolution, and the only way to upgrade is by the means of technology. It’s already happening - avatars, cyborgs, virtual and augmented reality technologies and AI are being incorporated in our everyday life.

How do artists reflect new digital identities and bodies? How can we read and define bodies in analogue and digital spaces? And how does that influence the art?
