core.pan is sybil montet & simon kounovsky. Started in 2016, the project is based on an extensive reflexion around symbiosis, high end engineering and consciousness, using new materiality and the digital as a way to explore the dynamics between mysticism, artificial intelligence and experimental science.

The title of core.pan exhibition references to lycanthropy, the self-transformation into a werewolf. Important is here not only the wolf, as a symbol of natural, wild, strongly sensual and vital forces, but also all the fancifulness of this idea, that however accompany mankind for centuries. Therefore it is probably also a symbolical symptom of the enforced, imposed division of nature and culture. Although the werewolf shapeshifting is not permanent and apparently it is possible to control it, in the later phases to a large extent, what happens here is immediate essential transformation of a given structure, that cannot be foreseen or explained from the previous structural ordering.
Not without a cause we, therefore, encounter throughout the exhibition some sort of portals. However they be to virtual or imaginary worlds, it seems, those dispose of certain ecologies per se, certain vital processes insides of them. All works of core.pan are the results or clashes of physical or auratic material attributes, accidental- ity and the will of the authors that results in some sort of self-establishing arrangements, whether it be not entirely controlled computer animation, hand grinding into stone or the logic of internet memes.
Solo exhibition at Futura, Prague, 05/03/19-28/04/19.
