The Jaguars And Electric Eels group exhibition is on at Düsseldorf’s Julia Stoschek Collection, having opened February 5 and running to November 26, 2017.
The show brings together 30 artists who engage in the “search for our evolutionary roots” including Heike Baranowsky, Encyclopedia Pictura/ Björk, Ryan Gander, Donna Huanca, Isaac Julien, Ana Mendieta, Ben Rivers, Guan Xiao and Anicka Yi, among others.
Through an observation of nature and ourselves, the works look at ‘indigeneity,’ hybridity and “synthetic forms of life” as well as migration and our “constantly changing perceptions of reality” that affect and influence the way we understand the world.
Founded in 2007, the Julia Stoschek Collection in Düsseldorf is a private collection of contemporary art that focuses mainly on time-based media art, also opening a space in Berlin in 2016. Both regularly present exhibitions and publications of their collection that houses over 700 works by international artists.
