I’m glad to be taking part in Biennale Némo in Paris as part of a wonderful group show featuring a number a number of my long time favourite artists. The curatorial statement by Dominique Moulon and Gilles Alvarez of the show goes as
There are many ways to conceive the lack or loss of autonomy, for humans as well as machines. By analyzing our relationships with technology, we understand that this missing autonomy is an important society issue. As a matter of fact, over time, we have given our knowledge and intelligence to servers and applications. This includes our most intimate memories that we are totally unable to precisely locate. We lose our minds at the thought of having a low battery or a disconnected network, even for a short amount of time. Who has never experienced this kind of temporary missing power or service without feeling desperately helpless? Even moving around requires the computation of devices and we continue to ignore their extreme complexity. Our autonomy is progressively diminished as we delegate them with more and more tasks even though we know their potential instability. Zero Autonomy’s exhibition aims to put the human back into the machine as well as reveal the importance of our decisions and intuitions that will remain so for years to come. Algorithms, we have been told, are supposedly able to learn by themselves if, and only if, we stimulate them. It is this essential stimulation that we want to examine throughout artworks that emerge from the relations between knowledge and know-how. When artists are very close to the technological apparatus, they activate them to create art together. Beyond the lack or absence of autonomy, is the interdependency that is the essential value of today’s art in the era of digital omnipresence. (at Moscow, Russia)

Sneak peek of “Twelve Nodes” currently on view at Valetta Contemporary, Malta as part of Non-Aligned Networks show. 12 marble blocks, 12 e-ink screens, patch panels and patch cords, ethereum blockchain network. This new piece came out of my two years long and ongoing collaboration with Fair Data Society, a foundation and community of blockchain developers / activists developing Fair Data Certificate and decentralised fair data exchange platform and guidelines focused on humans, ethics, privacy and fair data economies. The work refers to roman Twelve tables, a very first written legislation that stood at the foundation of Roman law displayed as twelve marble plates in Roman Forum. A written language used in traditional law and legal instrument is also used in coding algorithmic law that which takes over traditional governing models in the age of surveillance capitalism, data slavery and algorithmic decisionism. E-ink screens embedded in the marble blocks display a current status of collectively written Fair Data Principles to which anyone on the internet can contribute and bring edits and upon which the paltform is built. Connected via ethernet cables all the elements of installation form a decentralised network on it’s own. More soon.
