12 February 2015

Import Projects is bringing a new collaborative show by Grégoire Blunt and Emmy Skensved titled eStamina, running at the Berlin space from February 14 to March 7.

The duo “delves into the perceived possibilities of ‘human enhancement’ through technological means” with a 60-minute ambient audio track functioning as the show’s centerpiece. The track is accompanied by CG visuals in “a drugged fog”, as well as scripted contributions from 26 other artists, musicians, curators and neuroscientists.

Some of the other contributing artists in the Anja Henckel and Nadim Samman-curated show include Antoine RenardEmma Siemens Adolphe, Susan PloetzEgle Kulbokaite, Viktor Timofeev, and Alex Turgeon, all coming together in a “projection of anxieties and desires driven by the hyper-emotionalized and aestheticized ideals of the commercial sphere”.
