The World Was to Me a Secret Which I Desired to Divine
spatial installation, 2017–2019
Emir Šehanović draws inspiration from meditations on the post-human body, Frankenstein’s body as Mary Shelley wrote about it, or as discussed in the Cyborg Manifesto by Donna Haraway. In line with this narrative, associating further with Storytelling for Earthly Survival (Haraway), Šehanović presents us with worlds free from the anthropocentric complex, where both nature and artificial entities produce realities. In response to his work, one must think about the very real presence of what seems to be a fiction, and yet is not: climate change, which consequently becomes a problem for all species.
