The PRK-1U* is a device created by the Russian Grigory Grabovoi in the 2000s. It is a quantum device with optical system which considerably accelerates the expansion of consciousness through the concentration of thought. With its cold and sterile design, tted with lenses, it works like a particle accelerator, but at the level of the individual’s consciousness. It ultimately tends to lead individuals and the world towards harmony, wholeness, unconditional love and eternal life.
It costs 10,000 euros.
Also, this strange little machine allows anyone
who masters it to materialize their reality, to shape it as they see fit.
If one seek connexions between the works presented in this exhibition and the PRK-1U, these are certainly to be found in the generative power of design on minds, in the materialization of ideas through artistic forms, but also in the anxiety of present time, in its tensions and con icts, in the absurdity of the decisions taken, in the irresolution of existential problems.
As if to break free from the deadlock in which human society seems to be frozen, collective sessions PRK-1U broadcast on YouTube are playing inside the show in a bewitching litany.
