Venelin Shurelov is a critically acclaimed young set designer, who specializes also with multimedia. He is the winner of the First Prize for contemporary Bulgarian art, given by MTel. “Man ex Machina” is an intimate event, a mixture between installation, performance and lecture. It explores the interrelations between human beings and technology, which have lead to the creation of hybrids. These fantastic, supernatural beings mark the boundaries between the human and the technological, between being born and being made, between fact and fiction. A protagonist in the performance is such a creature – an eclectic object, created by new technologies and old mechanisms, the body of the artist and sophisticated electronics.
