A dream has power to poison sleep evokes a poem by P.B. Shelley written in 1816, whose verses Mary Shelley quotes in her famous novel, adapting them to the voice of Dr. Frankenstein during an encounter with his creation. Firmly embodied in the popular imaginary, Frankenstein's romantic tale reproduces the myth of Prometheus, both proposing a challenge or break with the unity between the divine and the natural as indivisible wholes: the fragmented anatomy of the monster represents an essentially modern body, a symbiotic entity product of the confluence between technology, biology and culture that breaks with the idea of the subject as an autonomous unit.
Through video, sculpture and installation, the exhibition reflects on the idea of a posthuman body as a constellation of materials, organisms and beings at different scales, composing a complex network of relationships between the living and technology, aesthetics, symbiosis or toxicity. This expanded body, which transcends the humanist idea of the autonomous subject to rethink it as a collage or as a flow of processes, leads us to blur the boundaries between the cultural and the natural.
