In his installations, Yngve Holen explores the concept of the posthuman, especially as it relates to the constant advances of technology on the human body. He organizes displays of objects of corporate—or corporate-seeming—provenance, such as high-end CT scanners or model airplanes once prized by the jet set. These slick objects are often presented alongside a Holen-designed publication titled ETOPS (an acronym for Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards), which features discourses around the body—how we use and nourish it. The Berlin-based artist is not concerned with the technological impact of CT scanners or aviation equipment, but rather with how such technologies change our behavior and understanding of the human body.
