Dubai photographer and artist Isidora Bojovic, whose pieces use a blend of mixed media photography and illustration to blur the boundaries between human beings and robots, will showcase some of her artwork at the launch of an exhibition at the Cartoon Art Gallery, Al Quoz, on Wednesday, February 19 at 6pm.

The artist, through her various illustrations, aims at stirring up questions such as: Do we foresee a future where machines are afforded the same rights as biological beings? How will we define ourselves and our creations in a world where the two combine indistinguishably? What if we peel back our own fragile, transient flesh to reveal a synthetic body? What makes a person?

“The contemporary world is one of advanced biotechnology and artificial intelligence. A world where human potential has extended beyond its biological limits. A world where the intellect of machines is rapidly surpassing that of our own,” she added.

Bojovic is also an ambassador of START, non-profit organisation established by Art Dubai and the Al Madad Foundation, running art workshops for refugees, orphans and children with special needs across the Middle East and India.

The exhibition will run until February 26.
