eStamina delves into the perceived possibilities of ‘human enhancement’ through technological means. The centrepiece of the show, a 60-minute ambient audio track accompanied by cg visuals in a drugged fog, involves scripted contributions from 26 others, including artists, musicians, curators and a neuroscientist. In compiling these varied accounts, a futuristic dreamscape emerges – a projection of anxieties and desires driven by the hyper-emotionalized and aestheticized ideals of the commercial sphere.

Texts and narrations contributed by Anna Sagström + Matilda Tjäder, Susy Oliveira, Emmy Skensved, Zayne Armstrong, Dorota Gaweda, Emma Siemens-Adolphe, Susan Ploetz, Jeni Fulton, Kate Brown, Eglė Kulbokaitė, Wojciech Olejnik, Antoine Renard, Mark Stroemich, Gregory Blunt, Robin Murphy, Carl Palm + Sebastian Rozenberg, Lauryn Youden, Viktor Timofeev, Zuzanna Ratajczyk, Beny Wagner, Shaun Motsi, Luca Iemi, Dylan Aiello, Alex Turgeon, Bitsy Knox, Clémence de la Tour du Pin
