AInimals by Mihai Grecu: A Metamorphosis of AI Artistry
Exhibition: 17.01.2024 - 10.02.2024
Step into the surreal realm of Mihai Grecu's "AInimals," an exhibition that defies conventional boundaries of artistry. Since 2004, Grecu has crafted mesmerizing video art, exploring the convergence of technology, nature, and the surreal. His foray into AI-generated artistry since 2019 brings forth a world where creatures morph and transcend their earthly forms.
At the heart of this exhibition lies a fusion of the organic and the digital. Grecu's artistic vision breathes life into ethereal beings born from the boundless imagination of artificial intelligence.
These creatures, a union of machine intelligence and creative vision, blur the lines between reality and fiction, pulsating with an otherworldly allure.
"AInimals" pays homage to an ancient artistic lineage fascinated with metamorphosis and surrealism. Grecu echoes the traditions of artists from antiquity, where mythological beings seamlessly merged with the natural world. Like his predecessors, Grecu animates AI-created animals, ushering them into our collective consciousness.
The exhibition is a testament to art's transformative power, serving as a conduit for contemplation and introspection. These AI-generated beings transcend mere representation, invoking emotions and challenging perceptions as they navigate a digital landscape.
Grecu's "AInimals" exhibition will notably contribute to the Vorspiel Festival in 2024. This collaboration amplifies an avant-garde spirit, inviting audiences into an immersive experience where tradition meets innovation.
Join us on a journey where reality and imagination converge, where AI breathes life into fantastical beings, and tradition merges with innovation. Mihai Grecu's "AInimals" invites you to witness the metamorphosis of art, a mesmerizing odyssey into the unknown.
