As digital technologies change the definition of what it means to be human, the relationship between physical presence, virtual identity and digital corporeality becomes more diffuse.
The work of Frenetik Void unfolds in a science-fiction environment, a post-human universe inhabited by mutating beings, hybrids in which the limits are vanished. The suspended bodies in liquid natures build scenes of surrealistic airs. But if there is something that remains as a constant, it is the presence of humanoids that, as symbolic figures, represent multiple behaviors.
The selection of works reflects phenomena of transformation and deformation, both of the human body and its computerized habitat, a synergy that oscillates between technophobia and technophilia. They capture the fragility and beauty of this constant distortion, a metaphor that opens paths to think about our hybrid contemporary identity.
