Event Details

Alienarium 5 is a speculative environment that invites us to imagine possible encounters with extraterrestrials.

The exhibition is a culmination of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s decades-long interest in science fiction, and her continued research into deep space and alien life. Drawing on a wide range of references from music, literature, film, architecture and pop culture, the artist creates densely layered environments that transport viewers into alternative narrative, temporal and psychological dimensions.

A multi-user VR piece contemplates new forms of connection through alien embodiment, while an immersive 360-degree collage titled Metapanorama uses outer space as a framework to bring humans, nonhumans and extraterrestrials together. With live apparitions appearing at various points during the exhibition, Alienarium 5 blurs the lines between past and present, and between what is real and imagined.
