The exhibition “Liza Tulchinskaya. Mimicry” expands on the transformation of corporeality in the time of multiplied representations. Tulchinskaya addresses new visual codes of a human body that register technology-mediated being. Her figures – genderless, naked and cold – adopt neutrality of machines/programs and function to characterize their own post-materiality; the binary-coded bodies are floating along the digital flow or stuck somewhere in between and get glitched. Within the artistic research motion trail pictures, screenshots, over filtered selfies, frozen video calls become the material to be analyzed in the medium of painting and graphics.
Liza Tulchinskaya (b. 1991) is a Moscow based visual artist. She graduated Surikov Moscow State Academic Institute of Arts in 2015 and started her career in the Aidan Salakhova’s studio.
