Psychosis, Mushroom Field
This NFT is a delusion borne of an amalgamation of intense desire and paranoia in the mind of Sarah Kane, who was the cult British playwright of the 90s. Likely one of the most provocative NFT artworks minted on SuperRare, "Mushroom Field" is part of the "Psychosis" series, originally conceived as a video stage design for a theatre production reinterpreting Sarah Kane's "4:48 Psychosis" at Electrotheatre Stanislavsky in Moscow. The NFT's Verisart certificate includes access to the preview of the full 18-minute "Psychosis" video, which the artists have not shared with the public. AES+F is a collective of four Russian artists (T. Arzamasova, L. Evzovich, E. Svyatsky, and V. Fridkes) with studios in Berlin, New York, and Moscow. The group was founded as AES in 1987 and evolved to AES+F with the addition of Fridkes in 1995. They define their practice as a "social psychoanalysis" through which they explore and reveal the deeply-rooted values, vices, and conflicts within contemporary global culture.
