Tapei Fine Arts Museum presents “The Modern Exorcist“, a group exhibition curated by Xiao Shuwen that investigates the collapse of humanism.
The exhibition explores the meanings of post-humanism, which questions the role of nature in creating humans, shedding a light on the increasing role of technology. This reflection is rooted in the idea of techno-animism and investigates the building of technologically generated alter ego identities and virtual bodies’ ability to produce the illusion of “real life”.
The show features artworks by Yin-Ju Chen, Kate Cooper, Cécile B. Evans, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Pakui Hardware, Po-Chih Huang, Stefan Kaegi / Rimini Protokoll, Lawrence Liu, Su-Yuan Wu, Slow Geng, and the M-Exo Con Production Committee. Artists present a heterogeneous set of media, including blends objects, sound and images, static displays, and live exhibitions, providing interdisciplinary aesthetics.
