"The hybrid is a figure of art that is shared by most of human cultures in the world and its history. From the ancient Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations until now, hybrids are used by humans as figuration for gods, spirits, geniuses and other supra-entities. However, the history of hybrids in art is not uniform and unbroken, each culture and civilization has is own way of conceptualizing hybrids. This talk proposes to focus on the diversity of hybrids in art and then to question the specificity of Christiaan Zwanikken's productions."
