Emerging artists and scientific practices have evolved new species of hybrid art forms. Super Human revisits the Cartesian body and its place in contemporary culture through its focus on Cognition and Neurology (Mind), Augmentation and Biological Manipulation (Body) and Nanoscale Interventions (Spirit, that which is not visible). Showcasing work in these fields by a new generation of Australasian artists, Super Human exposes our aspirations and fears about our bodies and their extraordinary functions. Presented by ANAT in association with RMIT Gallery.
