In a world where immortality is the norm, the future is my future is a group exhibition on view at Galeria Duarte Sequeira until May 18, 2019. Galeria Duarte Sequeira is a gallery situated in Braga, Portugal, dedicated to supporting and promoting national and international contemporary artists. Alongside the main exhibition programme, they run an artist residency and a curated public programme that encourages a critical exchange of ideas.
In a world where immortality is the norm, the future is my future artists like Eva Papamargariti, Oliver Laric, Saelia Aparicio, and Timur Si-Qin, explore the constantly-redefined term ‘humanPapamar‘. Taking the myth of Eos and Tithonus as a starting point, the artist discusses the evolutionary process and raises questions about technological advances under capitalism and how these have, in turn, affected humanity’s relationship with time and nature.
The exhibition delves into the collaboration between the human and non-human, the boundaries of natural and artificial, organic and synthetic, the real and fictional, and the aesthetic and the practical and encourages to consider the way each body experiences life individually, and collectively contributes to the expansion of the term ‘human’.
