Artist Statement

Detlef SchlichI am an interdisciplinary artist working with performance, photography, painting, sound, installations and film. My main concern is the exploration of the loss of boundaries between human beings and technology in the 21st Century, the emerging phenomenon of transhumanism in the digital age.

My methodology is the creation of an alter ego, a mythical character, a contemporary manifestation of transhumanism which embodies the symbiotic relationship between the human experience and technology. Through these alter egos I can explore this fatalistic relationship in which human beings are losing their spirituality and seek methods of re-spiritualization through art.

In my studio I use ritual performance footage as a source of inspiration. I then work with digital and physical media collaging both the charcoal, acrylics and digital to create a final piece of visual work.
