Artemis Gallery is pleased to present the second part of the exhibition 'Unlimited Creations', at DIT., Vienna.

“Around 40,000 years ago the first known artwork was created. It shows the stencil-like outline of a hand: They were humans, making their mark. Discovered in a limestone cave on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, in the 1950s the paintings are a proof of life and one of the first known image one could refer to as an “avatar”, atermoriginating from Sanskrit, meaning “descent”, in this case “the descent of a deity into a terrestrial form”. Wrote Marlies Wirth in the original essay of 'Unlimited Creations,' an exhibition that now wants to extend itself in time and different platforms and places.

For this second moment, the Artemis Pop-Upshow will trigger a loop of ever-unfolding reflections and moving images, patterns, and repetitions, reactivating works by the artists Banz&Bowinkel and Martina Menegon and introducing a new element by Dagmar Schürrer.

Quoting the Curator of Digital Culture at MAK,“‘Unlimited Creations’ defines the artist in the digital age as a creator of multiple and complex realities, reshaping the meaning of images, concepts, beliefs and politics, of truth and post-truth, reality and hyper-reality, and outgrowing our ancestral bodily capacities. Shifting from what Marcel Duchamp called the “retinal” (pleasing to the eye) to the “intellectual” (in the service of the mind), art has since become a vehicle for sharing distinct views of the world, and more than that, a way of worldmaking.”
