About

The Probability Beyond

In the emerging era dominated by AI, the Metaverse, NFT technology, and web3, the conventional beliefs about art and human creativity are being challenged. Project Here/After The Art gives voice to renowned creators from diverse backgrounds across the world to expand boundaries and envision the future of art.

Unique creations, visions, and insight will be sealed in smart contract-controlled time capsules. These NFTs will be minted unrevealed for a single uniform price. At that point it is time for a critical choice of each holder whether to reveal time capsule publicly or preserve its enigmatic allure, intensifying anticipation and augmenting its inherent value. Yet, this decision carries an element of risk, for all capsules are destined to be revealed automatically and randomly in a span of 1 - 5 years.

Here/After The Art encourages artists, collectors, and art theorists in a shared pursuit to explore the very definition of art and its profound impact as it is now and for the hereafter.

Orkhan Mammadov
AZERBAIJAN

Orkhan Mammadov is a new media artist & creative director, working with a focus on representing eastern culture through innovative art-making methods. Orkhan immersed himself in new media flows in global trends and became fascinated by local youth subcultures to investigate the redemption of history and culture. He examines the alternative conditions of cultural heritage perception with artificial intelligence & generative art. As a primary core of his practice, Orkhan focuses on how the cultural and historical codes integrate a new forward-looking medium, virtual reality, into contemporary views of our everyday life.

Born and raised in Azerbaijan’s culturally rich Ganja city, Orkhan was immersed by his deeply personal interest in digitizing and regenerating cultural heritage. His spatial juxtaposition is a kind of experiment that emerges for the audience, raising questions about the intellectual, emotional, and aesthetic implications of artificial visual cultural artifacts. By strong research-based practice, Orkhan’s works unquestionably display the significance of the traditions and history to understanding and caring for the legacy of tangible and intangible heritage assets from Azerbaijan and the Middle East.

Internationally he is recognized for his cultural data sculptures and dynamic carpet installations, which explore the alienation and escapism felt by a disaffected and displaced culture that casts itself as a fictional but physical element. The interplay between virtual and real worlds, utopia and dystopia, and the body and technology would remain major themes for Orkhan as his cultural commentary became increasingly pointed. Orkhan exhibited at several international biennales, festivals, and fairs, including Venice Biennale, Italy (2019), B3 Biennale of Moving Images, Frankfurt, Germany (2022), Art Dubai in UAE (2022), Art Basel in Miami, USA (2021), Moscow International Contemporary Art Biennale in Moscow, Russia (2019), Nasimi Festival in Baku, Azerbaijan (2018), Gamma Festival in ST. Petersburg, Russia (2018), IF Istanbul International Film Festival in Istanbul, Turkey (2017), ACCU Festival in Prague, Czech Republic (2017), Dave Festival in Dresden, Germany (2017).
