About the Item

The main theme of Maria Agureeva's work is the interaction of nature and human global body. Specifically, this project is dedicated to human corporality. Modern philosophers, Yuval Harari and Daniel Kahneman, relying on the fact that today changes in the human world are taking place at a high speed, believe that in the near future technologies will become part of a new corporality. In her works, Maria proposes an alternative scenario in which the human body will develop not in the direction of manufacturability, but in the direction of natural symbiosis, as a result of which new forms of life are synthesized - no longer a person, but not yet a plant or animal, but something borderline.
