According to Greek mythology, the Chimera was a monstrous fire-breathing female creature composed of the parts of three animals: a lion, a serpent and a goat. In popular culture the term has been used to describe any fictional being composed by different parts as well as to describe illusory ideas and actions. Taking inspiration from the creature’s composed physicality and fictional being, the show reflects on new forms of abstraction and intangibility derived from the assemblage of different styles and materials often associated with the internet and its context of visual and narrative fragmentation. The presented works mix personal visions and popular culture with digital aesthetics, aiming to reproduce heterogeneous feelings and an interpretative contingency. Diversity in forms and the use of apparently distant tools and references are the point of departure to create a fictional sense of transcendence and fluidity. The selected works and theoretical contributions included in the exhibition aim to operate as activators, inviting the viewer to participate in the construction of meaning whilst also initiating alter relationships between media’s attributions and works' narratives.

This exhibition celebrates cacophony and material-crossing whilst floating between physicality and significance, to consider alternative forms of artistic expression looking at a context-based sensoriality as opposed to direct representation.

The exhibition is accompanied by an online pdf publication with contributions by Rhys Coren, Marialaura Ghidini, Arcadia Missa & Paolo Ruffino and a series of events
