HVW8 Gallery Berlin is pleased to present cross-side crystal; hybrid orbital, a group exhibition curated by Irene Carbonari exploring experimental forces around the idea of the ‘hybrid’. Bringing together the works of eleven contemporary artists from Germany, France, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Russia, the show evokes notions of merging the human, the machine, and the natural organism. The varied presence of hybrid forms in the works are embedded within the complexities and nuances of lived experiences, creating visual odes to the eternal mutability of expression.

In cross-side crystal; hybrid orbital, the works straddle multiple states or slip away from direct categorization, and are characterized by the merging of mediums, including digital, light and sculptural installations, paintings, ceramics, and augmented reality. The works reveal the destruction and reckoning to come from the rise and proliferation of networks and connections within our material world, and the human drive for production and so-called progress.
