30/11/2012 Miami Beach

Auriea Harvey's work often references ancient mythologies. Rendering iconography into form, she utilizes new methods that point to the future of our ability to create and to retell our stories. Harvey gives us The Adventures of Minoriea, which follows an elusive and powerful character an animated futuristic goddess. Half-woman, half-bull, this beautiful beast stands as a symbol of the potential of the human body the very possibilities we might be or might become. The viewer might find her both comical and menacing, seductive and brooding, speaking of humanity in all its animality and of what the future of technology may hold. The Minotauress reminds us not only of our connection to our own bestial nature, but also points to the very potential for our bodies to transition, to change, and to become to inhabit a boundless and unrestrained hybridity. We find AR versions of The Adventures of Minoriea dispersed throughout the Faena district in Art Week Miami 2021 like the trickster characters of many cosmologies, Harvey opens up the crossroads between the digital and the physical, between the future and the past, between this world and the next.
