OPENING: 25/07/2024, 19.00

To look towards the light of new horizons is to dare to look first into the darkness.

Shapeshift Spaceship is an intergalactic exploration of the terra incognita of categories at the boundaries of established gender and taxonomic norms. The invitation to leave the holy fathermother planet allows explorers to open their minds and hearts fully in the face of the unknown. Thus, observing the universe around us may have the potential to change the way we view the universe within ourselves. This makes the pioneers of transhumanism question whether things are really as they seem. The answers may vary – we are, after all, only at the beginning of the journey – but what is certain is that once we embark on it, we can no longer be who we were at the beginning.

The artists meeting in Shapeshift Spaceship – Alex Sihelsk*, Anthr0morph, Chin Tsao, El Pelele and Veronika Žilinská – together create the Museum of the Future, where evolved post-human beings morph freely across species, where fauna merges with flora, earthlings with extraterrestrials and biology with technology. Is a transfuturistic future awaiting us? And what message can we read from it about our present?

The exhibition at the MeetFactory Gallery is the main outcome of a broadly speculative project, which will later include an accompanying publication, a music compilation, and a music event/party taking place at the MeetFactory in August.

The opening on 25 July will include three performances by the exhibiting artists:

Anthr0morph feat. Oliver Torr: Anthr0morph Manifesto: Initiation
• El Pelele: Mis Canciones
Pope Sangreta
