KIBLIX 2019 VR Exhibition
In collaboration with Khora Contemporary
Opening and presentation, Wednesday, 4 December 2019 at 8 p. m. in MMC KIBLA
Christian Lemmerz, Paul McCarthy in Yu Hong
Virtual reality is increasingly becoming a real reality, and a milieu of art creation. We are working alongside Khora Contemporary from Copenhagen, Denmark, whose team explores the capabilities and impact of modern technology through art projects. They provide artists with the appropriate support in developing and unleashing their creative visions and exploring this new medium and its expressions.
Khora Contemporary is one of the pioneers of using a fascinating new medium that delivers the highest quality viewer experience through art works. On their list are world-class artists – Tony Oursler and Paul McCarthy (USA), Christian Lemmerz (DE), Erik Parker (DE/USA), Yu Hong (CN) and Nikita Shalenny (UA) – some of them were or are featured as part of Kiblix festival.
We may wonder what the consequences of this complex set of technologies that are developing today will be; will it relieve or burden us, will it raise self-awareness and human awareness, or is it merely going to be a practical tool for spare time, for game playing and focused marketing of certain products. It is a fact it exists. And art can humanize technology, re-question its canons, and test its limitations.
The exhibition will be opened by Allega Shorto, Art Director of Khora Contemporary.
The exhibition will be showing until 28 December 2019
