Overly sexy, smart, edgy and dangerous

series of objects,
smoke, aluminum, cooper, pvc, linen, audio & video, 2018

Overly sexy, smart, edgy and dangerous draws inspiration from popular computer games, in which the players present in countless virtual arenas compete with each other. Dressed in digital armours that allow them to break the laws of physics, they travel through space-time at the speed of fiber optics. They hide their personalities under the masks of colorful avatars. In the hottest moments of combat, they throw out messages that can have real political significance. A series of objects prepared for the exhibition builds a specific image of an abandoned battlefield. Blades hung from jagged clothing seem to be a remnant of a conflict that might have occurred in some distant world. It is difficult to recognize the time when this fight could have taken place or imagine the physiognomy of warriors. Since the player moves in a 3D virtual world in real time and looks from the perspective of the first person, the games play an important role in artificial intelligence research, offering an interactive environment for testing human reasoning and problem solving. Arranged in the basement of the DriveDrive gallery, the exhibition moves the virtual landscape into tangible territory, situating the audience as potential players.
