Humber Street Gallery, Hull, Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Our collective hope for what the future might look like is heavily shaped by both our past and present. Danish artist Aniara Omann considers just this in Equanipolis; a new exhibition of work at Humber Street Gallery.
The two-floor exhibition uses sculpture, textiles and animatronics to explore what the future of humanity might look like. Investigating how our vision of the future is influenced by our experiences with science-fiction film and TV, as well as modern day social and environmental issues.
Omann’s dark and futuristic sculptures use traditional special effects techniques such as silicone–based casting, as well as newer bio-conscious materials that mimic human skin.
Inspired by traditional prop-making, vintage fashion and popular sci-fi, Equanipolis invites you to step into an alternate reality and reconsider the past, present and future.
