Until the end of this week - the exhibition Elixir Distillers at Galerija Kapelica / Kapelica Gallery is part of the Anthropomorphic Machines, my multi-year project, which is created on the twentieth anniversary of my artistic practice - through these new installations I summarise the key elements of my works - anthropomorphic and abstract machines, their roles in virtual/actual worlds, algorithms of noise, relationship of body, consciousness and technology, as well as the »uncanny« of technology.
Within this particular exhibition, I am exploring what can constitute a panacea nowadays - elements for elixirs and anthropomorphic agents are here functioning as research tools and “objects-to-think-with” about past and future technologies.
