Event overview

Geomancer shows in HyperPavilion, an exhibition of recently commissioned art exploring a post-humanist, digital age. The exhibition opens during the 57th Venice Biennale. Curator Philippe Riss-Schmidt brings together international artists whose works investigate the nature of simulation, virtuality, and simulacra. Situated within a 3,000 square metre space on the northern side of the Arsenale, the show includes large-scale projections, a 360 degree immersive cinema space and a hologram theatre.

In Geomancer, commissioned for the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2017, Lawrence Lek expands his signature gaming-world aesthetic to alight on a longstanding tension between the place of the human and the role of the machine. Set in Singapore, in a speculative future history in the year 2065, a satellite Artificial Intelligence 'awakens' above the city. Find out more.
