Hito Steyerl: Virtual Leonardo’s Submarine at Esther Schipper
Hito Steyerl’s first solo project with Esther Schipper (pictured above) is also the first virtual exhibition organized by the gallery, and is organized in collaboration with Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York. Leonardo’s Submarine was originally conceived as a video environment for the 58th Venice Biennale, and has been completed reworked as a Virtual Reality (VR) experience in which three virtual curved screens surround the viewer. The work draws parallels between the 16th century sketches of Leonardo da Vinci’s primitive submarine, and Leonardo S.p.A., an Italian global high-tech company that is a key player in aerospace, defense and security.
