Le progrès technologique a créé un nouveau mode de vie dans lequel les sociétés dépendent entièrement des appareils. Il n'y a pas d'espace entre le monde naturel et la dimension virtuelle, juste une marge floue dans laquelle nous habitons désormais.
Technological advancement has created a new mode of living in which societies are entirely dependent upon devices. There is no space between the natural world and the virtual dimension, just a blurred margin in which we now inhabit.
"Anti-body", a week-long exhibition presenting four artists from Los Angeles, New York and Paris, will take place at Glassbox exhibition space in the 11th arrondissement of Paris from June 19, 2018, through June 25, 2018. Through the works of four different artists, the project explores human relationship with the Internet and technology.
The title of the show takes inspiration from the text Romancing the Anti-Body: "Lust and Longing in (Cyber)space" by artist Lynn Hershman Leeson, referring to a fictional persona created on the Internet as an antibody navigating through cyberspace.
The four artists share similar practices regarding technology while producing works through different mediums with diverse artistic identities and aesthetics. The works will range from a photo installation by Signe Pierce, showcasing highly-saturated, hyperreal worlds, a large-scale digitized print by Liliana Farber, a video installation by Justine Emard and a projected real-time piece by Philip Rugo, visualizing and interpreting image consumption.
The project is curated by Team YYM, a group comprised of three members: Monica Hom, Yael Gelman and Yun Gao. They are a collaborative team from San Francisco, Israel and China with diverse professional backgrounds in journalism, artistic direction and finance.
