curated by Frederike Sperling
In the context of the increasing algorithmic control of our bodies and relationships, the performative group exhibition "connections unplugged, bodies rewired" traces post-digital intimacies. Loosely based on fragments of discarded data scraps, it flirts with diversities and incongruities that the gendered and racist algorithm is incapable to grasp. The invited artists navigate between digital and analogue realities, opening up spaces for unwritten relationships, unreadable bodies and complex sensuality.
Ongoing performance as part of Hyeji Nam's multimedia installation „Fly like a worm, sing like a snail – however they left, with the rattling sound of the bones breaking down“
The exhibition takes place within the framework of Vienna Art Week 2021.
