Suzanne Treister will be showing HEXEN 2.0/Historical Diagrams and HEXEN 2.0 /Cybernetic Séance in the group exhibition called Média Médiums (4 April to 31 May 2014).

Média Médiums is at Galerie Ygrec (exhibition venue of l’École nationale supérieure d’arts Paris Cergy). It will be presented as an investigation into and circulation of various archives, histories, protocols and devices linked to the idea of transporting thought and intelligence across space and time : mesmerism, spirit telegraphs, clairvoyance, television, ectoplasms, direct voice phenomena, suggestion, martians, aether and fluids, ghosts, mind reading, theory of information, telepathy, electronic voice phenomena, encrypted messages... There will be four nightly events consisting of lectures, performances, discussions, concerts and demonstrations. A publication is slated for 2015.

Initially recognized in the 1980s as a painter, Treister became a pioneer in the digital/new media/web based field from the beginning of the 1990s, making work about emerging technologies, developing fictional worlds and international collaborative organisations. Utilising various media, including video, the internet, interactive technologies, photography, drawing and watercolour, Treister has evolved a large body of work which engages with eccentric narratives and unconventional bodies of research to reveal structures that bind power, identity and knowledge. Often spanning several years, her projects comprise fantastic reinterpretations of given taxonomies and histories that examine the existence of covert, unseen forces at work in the world, whether corporate, military or paranormal.
