This year, Lexus Hybrid Art is marking its fifth anniversary with an exhibition at VDNKH’s Optika Pavilion. In studying the future as a territory for materializing today’s fantasies, Lexus Hybrid Art 2014 curator Bogomir Doringer invites viewers to be like Joyce’s Ulysses or the heroes of Stanley Kubrick’s A Space Odyssey, and set off onto a journey to the horizons of temporarily indefinite states of being and unfinished processes. A collective fantasy of the future, expressed in ten original tales, is brought to life by means of modern technologies in the historic interiors of the Optika Pavilion. These episodes can be seen in any order, creating from disparate images a mosaic of the main theme. Participating artists are Ivan Navarro, Conrad Shawcross, Suzanne Dikker and Matthias Oostrik (Marina Abramovic Institute), Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Jim Campbell, Ofer Smilansky and Isjtar (ATK!), Raquel Kogan, Leonardo Crescenti, Rejane Cantoni, Michela Pelusio, Isabelle Andriessen, Bernd Oppl.
