EXHIBITION | Istanbul, Borusan Contemporary, Fluid Bodies, Universal Everything

The exhibition, Fluid Bodies, led by Creative Director Matt Pyke, explores Universal Everything’s fascination with the human form – the characteristics of the individual and its behavior as part of a larger collective.

Universal Everything, which is a global collective of artists, designers, animators, musicians and programmers, in collaboration with Radiohead, Apple, Zaha Hadid Architecture, and Samsung, presents
earlier works of the collective, featured on the second floor of The Haunted Mansion at Borusan Contemporary: Portrait IISupreme Believers II, and Walking City. These works focus on the individual’s body and the capacity of this body to re-form, to transform and to adapt. Tribes and Emergence, which is also on the same floor, explores the nature of the individual within a larger group.

While the first section of the exhibition is about the here and now, the works on the fourth floor explore what the future might look like. Smart Matter, the first in the Hype Cycle series of films, looks at the human-machine collaboration through performance and emerging technologies. Machine Learning depicts a new world where the machine is now autonomous creating new unpredictable forms of movement. Screens of the Future is a series of visionary prototypes, showcasing our increasingly integrated relationship with new technologies.

The exhibition, curated by Conrad Bodman, will close on 17. February.
