Filipe Afonso presented solo exhibition L’Inhumain at Montluçon’s Fonds D’Art Moderne Et Contemporain De Montoluçon which opened October 7 and ran to November 5.
The installation brings together video and sculptural elements and re-purposes found objects and life’s fragments, including a vacuum bag, inkjet print on paper, rope, a Furby robot, dead plants and towels with image transfers to name a few.
Exploring humanity, its limits and the concept of future posterity, the show explores contemporary anxiety, or “cosmic anxiety.” Preservation, transhumanism, malfunction, consequence and the desire for growth are all theories touched upon in the press release which contextualises the motives behind the work.**
