Hyperlink Athens presents the  "Anthr0 Series" a solo exhibition by Anthromorph.

Anthromorph's visual language aims to abstract the body and present it as a form in the shape of the human. Inspired by transhuman and cyborg theory, with the use of silicone exoskeletons the body transforms into an animal hybrid state. The work is exhibited on Instagram, a social media platform that due to it is popularity has infiltrated the social body. The representations there, have become a legitimized identification for the cyber social body. This way, transhuman representations on the platform allow the viewer to experience a type of humanness that wouldn't be able to otherwise.  

Queer/non-normative bodies are often modeled as Anthromorphs and are celebrated through the lens. Having no vision while you perform allows the performers to be empowered and present their bodies separated from the negative connotations human society enforces. It tries to bridge the gap between humans and nature and calls for oneness between all organisms, similar to how 30 trillion individual different cells bond selflessly together to give life to one multicellular organism.

Hyperlink Athens is an open research project, a site of interdisciplinary collaboration; this is the core that characterizes its trajectory. Hyperlink expands its practice/methodology into a symbiotic manner with off-site installations, in-situ interventions, video documentation, and sound, with a view to creating an autonomous fluid mode between artwork and curation. The praxis of putting works in a new light provides a critical research process of investigation, discovery, and reflection on contemporary culture.
