Medusa Bionic Rise, 2018
Medusa Bionic Rise is a complex performance-installation, a blast of actions explodes before us. The neurosis of the gym, Velcro-stripped prosthetics, body altering rituals, amino-acid and protein cocktail-disguised concoctions in a futuristic bar. A DJ blasting high pumping beats from loudspeakers, bodies rolling and kicking and punching, fluorescent green vinyl and Styrofoam-padded surfaces while exercising and sweating against plotter printed commercial billboards. In parallel, a series of pseudo-scientific experiments that measure muscular and brain abilities through futuristic body metrics and performance tracking devices take place. This is the dawn of an era in which wellness transforms into the cult of healthism. Medusa Bionic Rise, through its numerous layers, can be perceived as a visual walkthrough to post-humanism.
