“HYBRIS. Monsters and Hybrids in Contemporary Art” exhibition ended on June 28 in Venice. A special multi-sensory workshop/performance conducted by the Studio and Research of Audiovisual Communications (Studio e Ricerca Comunicazione Audiovisiva) took place at 11 PM, June 27 at Cà Foscari Zattere, CULTURAL FLOW ZONE. See the report below:
The project in the exhibition halls of the library at Ca’ Foscari University, organized by MediaArtLab CYLAND, will showcase works of 19 artists from Italy, Russia, Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium and the US. The project’s theme contemplates one of the mechanisms underlying the functioning of culture – the connection of the unconnectable, the problem of the relations between “one’s own” and “someone else’s”, the blurring of the borders between well-established concepts. At the exhibition, the neighbouring ofnew technologies and old media create a space where “personal territories” of artworks are not divided – they are germinating into each other, producing new “hybrid fruits” of the perception of art. Constructed cyberspaces, post-Soviet reflections, hybrids of geometry and classics, art and life – all this diversity of objects presented by the artists suggests that this theme is as relevant today as it was 5,000 years ago.
