More about the artwork

The group of sculptures by the artist Aleksandra Domanović, who was born in Novi Sad in the formerYugoslavia and now lives in Berlin, revolves around the Belgrade Hand, the world’s first bionic handprosthesis equipped with five fingers and a sense of touch. Yugoslav engineer Rajko Tomović inventedit in 1963 for soldiers who had lost their hands in World War II, and it was soon seen as an importantlandmark in the development of robotics. For her sculptures, Domanović recreated the shape of theBelgrade Hand using software, had it 3-D printed in polyamide and polyurethane plastic, and coatedwith brass, aluminum, and a soft-touch surface. The finger positions of “Fatima,” “Mayura Mudra,”and “Little Sister” reference symbolic gestures from different cultural traditions and times. Similarly,the works are ciphers for Domanović’s exploration of the significant but mostly overlooked role women have played in technological developments. The timeline accompanying the sculpturesreflects this history of technology and its gender-specific disparities.
