A many headed god is caught in a moment of transformation, their golden form simultaneously solid yet liquid. In a new series of algorithmically determined pieces, the Colombian artist Juan Covelli has utilised a GAN, or Generative Adversarial Network, to process a database of sculpted deities, a dream enacted by a machine.

In this new edition, Covelli presents a single moment of the dream, Cacique (2020) roughly meaning the native chief. A comment upon the ritual processes used to connect us to gods and ancestors, Covelli’s use of an algorithm also poses a critique of Western museological and archival conventions, practices that aim to create empirical knowledge but often allow true understanding to escape.

Juan Covelli
Juan Covelli is a Colombian artist and independent curator currently living and working in Bogatá, where he teaches at Universidad El Bosque/Universidad Javeriana, he also runs the online art platform Nmenos1. Covelli’s practice revolves around the technological potentials of 3D scanning, modelling and printing to readdress entrenched arguments of repatriation and colonial histories.
