Afterbirth of a Dream is the result of a curatorial collaboration between Jan Zálešák and
Christina Gigliotti; a stand-alone sequel to two projects curated by Jan
Zálešák; Apocalypse Me (2016) and Letting Go (2017). With a shift to a
dialogic way of forming a curatorial narrative, new themes have come to the
fore, yet the common leitmotif of the informal trilogy remains focused on the
frontier regions of the human world – areas where borders between realms of the
human and inhuman are dissolved.
The artworks presented within Afterbirth of a Dream move away from the sphere of "normality", from the supreme domain of a modern, rational subject. Todays’ subjectivity is shaped by a delirical experience with the constantly rearranged and transforming content of the Net, floating as a ghostly representation over the not well-kept facade of "reality," beyond which nothing is at it seems. Under the surface of human bodies there is a symbiotic multispecies universe, beneath the displays of smart devices – machinic assemblages of human and inhuman, below the surface of consciousness there are nebula of dreams and affections, ready to explode at any time and then absorb everything like a black hole.
