Abstract.

The subject of the study is contemporary art practices, examined by the author in the context of neo-mythologism and tendencies of posthumanism. In the article, the contemporary approach to the creation of pieces of art using the latest digital technology on the example of works of Russian and foreign artists E. Ostrova, K. Khudyakova, B. Viola, AES-F group, is analyzed. The spread of VR technology becomes a new method of conducting a dialogue with art images of the past, reconsidering a cultural tradition, and defining an own place in it. Contemporary art criticism and aesthetic discourse, as well as the concept of postmodernism, are actively used as a methodological basis. The main conclusions: avant-garde denial of tradition led to the exclusion, archiving of culture, and the destruction of the connection between the past and the future. Individual neo-myth, created by a modern artist - is a kind of compensatory mechanism, an attempt to put "shadows" of artistic images of the past in the context of the growing trends of posthumanism. The author's special contribution consists in the development of the concept of neo-mythologism in relation to the visual arts of the XX-XXI centuries. The novelty of the study is due to the detection of specific features of neo-mythologism in visual art, customary for the modern period. 

Keywords: video-art, video installations, digital art, VR technology, neo-mythologism, contemporary, art, myth, modernism, postmodernism
