Tripura’s digital chimeras

-
Giorgia Massari

In just over a week – precisely on October 12th – the spaces of the Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan will open their doors for Rea! Art Fair, the eagerly awaited emerging art fair by the Milanese and beyond. For this occasion, we would like to introduce you to one of the artists who will be present with a digital video installation that has piqued our curiosity. We’re talking about the artist Maria Agureeva, known by her artistic name Tripura, who primarily works with 3D motion graphics. Her research focuses on the relationship between the human body and nature. In particular, the artist creates a true hybridization between human and natural forms, giving rise to chimeras, bodies without boundaries.

Tripura is known in particular for her video works depicting pseudo jellyfish floating in space. In Warm Currents, for example, the previously mentioned human-nature hybridization is evident. The jellyfish’s tentacles end in hands, while the umbrella takes on the structure of the female breast.

Tripura’s creations offer an alternative to the perspective advocated by contemporary philosophers Yuval Harari and Daniel Kahneman, who believe that technology will become an essential part of the human body. On the contrary, the artist explores the concept of a natural symbiosis in which all living beings will undergo mutations, giving rise to new and simultaneously extraordinary forms of primordial life.

Tripura will be presenting the video artwork Sand Chimera at Rea! Art Fair.
