new creation 2019:

“OXY MORON – A CYBORG UTOPIA”

 

“Resistance is no longer sufficient. We need to turn things upside down, create new contradictions and illegibility.“ – Ch. Schlingensief

 

Oxy Moron is a play of multiple selves and their constant, seamless shape-shift between fiction and reality, magic and science, present and future. Using the modern day cyborg as a metaphorical narrative that unites both human appearance and machine-like behaviour, the work juggles with stereotypes and challenges different concepts of a perceived norm. Identities, corporealities and social status pass through a precarious transformation between self-empowerment, self-enhancement, self-optimization and self-deformation questioning the significance of the physical and the human in a digital age.
