For the Special Project # 15, Arshake is pleased to invite Gonzo, Bodysnatchers’ post digital and post human creature. Gonzo will live in Arshake’s Banner for several months. During this time, he will interact with visitors and with any kind of electronic device in a non conventional way. We interviewed Gonzo before his entrance, and we will talk with him soon during his stay. Conversation happens through his only means of communication with us, humans: the chat.
Born in 1995, the artist behind BodySnatchers exists online as an avatar. His work intertwines dreams, nightmares and modern alienations in the production of 3D digital artworks. Since 2015, BodySnatchers has taken part in several group exhibitions, either IRL or URL, in Italy, Mexico, United States and United-Kingdom. He also participated to the third edition of The Wrong Biennale. In 2018 he presented his first URL solo exhibition, titled “Sitting Gonzo Reflecting on Existence”, curated by Chiara Passa for TheWidgetArtGallery. His second solo show, “2274: Technocene”, was curated and presented for Art Contemporary Club (ACC), a Montreal-based independent curatorial collective founded in 2017 by Juliette Marzano and Raphaëlle Cormier.
