What kind of individual or societal transformations will follow the global pandemic?

METAMORPHOSIS refers to the classic Book of Changes (I Ching) and proposes that today, one of the fundamental effects of constant change is to broaden our understanding of the relationship between humanity, nature, and technology.

According to the Book of Changes, human society is in constant transformation, and everything is subject to change; yet at the same time there is a core that never changes. By understanding this core profoundly, it is therefore possible to foresee the future.

METAMORPHOSIS searches for meaningful core patterns by revisiting this triangular relationship to encourage diverse discussions about humanity in an age of uncertainty. It explores the symbiosis between the material and the immaterial, and the physical and the virtual, with selected artworks that incorporate generative imagery, artificial intelligence, metamaterials, and speculative biomorphic creatures.

A collaboration between Hyundai Motor Company and ELEKTRA in Montreal is meant to offer unique cultural experiences to our respective communities. The current context of social distancing and travel restrictions compels us to experiment with new strategies that allow us to continue exhibiting artworks by remotely bringing together local and international artists.

The invited artists, chosen from the previous and upcoming ELEKTRA International Digital Art Biennals, are located on three different continents and connected through digital technology.  METAMORPHOSIS will also be shared through various online platforms to create a virtual experience and foster exchange between communities across the globe.
