An exhibition in Berlin by acclaimed Irish artist Mark Cullen, and curated by Valeria Ceregini, marks the premiere showcasing of Cullen’s interactive playable sculpture, The Nowhere Belly, within his broader international project, Prototypes for Cyborgs.

Symphony of the Nowhere Belly delves into the essence of embodiment, perception, and engagement through a posthuman lens, utilising sculpture, installation, and digital platforms such as screens and audio interaction. This captivating exhibition project follows Cullen’s previous success with Towards Super-Connection at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Villa Croce, Genoa, Italy. It will continue its journey across Europe and will be further realised in Italy during Art Week in November as part of Diffusissima, Turin, 2024.

Collaborating with musician Tadhg Kinsella, whose sound design enriches the overarching project, Prototypes for Cyborgs, Cullen promises an immersive experience. Kinsella will join Cullen in performing the work live on the opening night, enhancing the multi-sensory nature of the exhibition. Following the opening performance the work will be playable by audience members for the duration of the show.
