butterfly gina (to make love with drones)
For their show at Ars Libera gallery, Andrey Bogush combines printed screenshots, found photographs, and digital drawings laminated in butterfly-shaped cut-outs. The title of the exhibition quotes a passage from Paul B. Preciado’s book Apartment on Uranus, in which the author “reflects on gender transitioning and political and cultural transitions in technoscientific capitalism”. Employing the butterfly’s transformative character and its shape as a flat display for their transgressive images, Bogush presents a visceral introduction to their idiosyncratic research on flesh and desire.
