Enter the Future Body




An exhibition by Jake Moore, winner of the Opem Solo Show prize 2017.

The exhibition will play with the line between the human body and the digital world.

Future Body, by Nottingham artist Jake Moore, is set to open at The Collection in Lincoln on Saturday 23 September.

The exhibition features five large-scale audio-visual installations that consider the inadequacy of the human form in the face of our increasingly ubiquitous technological climate.

Andrea Martin, exhibitions and interpretation manager, said: “Jake explores new-age narcissism, social media hype and the digital self. He explores the increasingly blurred line between the virtual and the real, questioning at what point the line between the body and digital code might begin to dissolve and, in a quest for a machine-like perfection, what further potential could be provided to a newly synthesised body. Jake’s research centres on his relationship with a body that holds a rare, chronic autoimmune condition. ”

Video, sound and computer animation are used to reconstruct the traumas of the body within controlled simulations that the audience are guided through.”
