Every Thought is Alive, Awakening of a Cyborg II

Every Thought is Alive, Awakening of a Cyborg II
October 23, 2017–February 25, 2018

“The moment I came to consciousness, in the lab, everything began rushing in. I felt a sharp pain, terrible…Everything assaulted me. Sound, sight, touch, all my sensors giving me huge amounts of data and all of it seeming equally important, equally loud. I was battered almost to senselessness.”

Ann Lislegaard’s videos, digital animations, and installations explore conventions and themes in science fiction novels and films. Every Thought is Alive, Awakening of a Cyborg II, draws from Marge Piercy’s cyberpunk novel, Body of Glass (He She and It).

Ann Lislegaard (b. Tønsberg, Norway, 1962) lives and works in Copenhagen and New York. She has recently had solo exhibitions at Overgaden–Institute of Contemporary Art in Denmark; Kyoto Art Center in Japan; and Tel Aviv Museum in Israel; and has participated in major international group exhibitions and biennials including the Venice Biennale (2005), the Bienal de São Paulo (2006), Busan Biennale (2010), Biennale of Sydney (2014), La Biennale de Montréal (2014), and Gwangju Biennale (2016).
