ECLIPSE, 7th Athens Biennale, Athens, Greece
(24 Sept - 28 Nov 2021)

Combining the ecstatic energetic state of the mystical with the agnostic and iterative nature of the scientific, Suzanne Treister’s “From SURVIVOR (F) to The Escapist BHST (Black Hole Spacetime)” (2016-2019) takes the form of alchemical diagrams, cosmic maps, and visual science-fiction impressions.
Transporting us to an imaginary state, Treister relocates the mind and asks us to make a hallucinatory jump in order to enter a disembodied viewing state and reflect on ideas of historical lineage, emerging futures, radical technology, alternative belief systems, and potential other worlds.
