The international exhibition Hyper takes the viewer directly to the skin, close to humanity. The works explore the relationship between life and death, reality and fantasy, human and machine, as well as various deformations of the human body. In hyperrealistic pieces, narrative and surprising elements merge with the precise depiction of reality. The subjects include everyday situations, ordinary people, and the diversity of human existence.
