“This wilderness is my universe!” (Patricia Piccinini, 2018)
Australian artist Patricia Piccinini lets us explore the future. The artist’s world is teeming with hybrid creatures that could have been given life through the most recent digital and biotechnological possibilities. The extensive overview addresses relevant social questions on techno-scientific discourses from a feminist perspective. The reception of Piccinini’s hybrids oscillates between fascination and discomfort, through which the viewer not only experiences the future, but also begins to question his own human existence. The selection of approximately 32 exhibits consists not only of sculptures and installations but also of videos and collages in order to present the wide range of Piccinini’s œuvre.
