This is the first solo show by the artist in Switzerland. The exhibition features several current works that take on the themes of biological progress, developments in artificial intelligence and scientific research on antibodies.
The exhibition at HeK is convincing proof of Hershman Leeson’s continued dedication to the relevant technologies and questions of our time. She is rightly described as a portraitist of the information age, a close observer of the protocols and institutions that will shape our concepts of identity and individuality in the future. In this sense, her art is also always political, since she concerns herself with the central social issues of our time.
