HYBRID BOX – Modular Gallery for Digital Arts

Mit Borrás | ADAPTASI CYCLE – ARCYRIA  | 07.10. – 07.11.2021

HYBRID BOX will be a new modular gallery in front of the Festspielhaus Hellerau presenting experimental and interdisciplinary art in the Digital Age by local as well as international artist:s while accompanying the beginning reconstruction of the east barracks.

The exhibition presents a video installation which is part of Borrás’ new body of work – the ADAPTASI CYCLE, that has been developed over the course of the last five years. ADAPTASI CYCLE is a divination of our reality, transcending the limits of pasts and futures, the organic and synthetic, the natural and technological. His work seeks to explore the metaphysical depths of adaptation as a method of surpassing the categorial limits of existence.

The film „Adaptasi Cycle – Arcyria“ presents the futuristic fiction of M: In an alternative present, M cultivates her pro-technological body and her mind on a daily basis in a methodical and ceremonial manner. Apart from the company of a white owl, she lives isolated in a ‘soft cave’ – a space of seemingly flawless harmony. Within this space, M trains and hydrates her physique virtuously, embodying accelerationistic fantasies that in a sense resemble a new occultism. During her push-ups and stretching, M meditates and mentally escapes to distant places beyond this amor vacui.

The film oscillates between states of physical exercise and mental immersion. As a vision of the future state of human existence and consciousness, “ADAPTASI CYCLE – ARCYRIA” negotiates the metaphysical depths of adaptation as a method of surpassing categorical boundaries between pasts and futures, the organic and synthetic, nature and technology.

Mit Borrás is a visual artist based in both Madrid and Berlin. His multi-dimensional artistic approach primarily incorporates video- and sculpture-based works that conceptually explore how modern society has elevated digitalism, technology, and progress into its paradigm of evolution.
