Curated by Meryem Erkus, the event is labelled a ‘Facebook stalking as Real Game Play’ that asks “Can you Deep Learn Desire?” The press release uses the metaphor of a leech appropriating human life to stay alive where we “enter into another mode of existence.” Players included Naomi Bisley, Konrad Bohley, Nikolas Brummer, Dagmar Buchenthal, Billy Bultheel, Jonathan Omer Mizrahi, Garrett Nelson and Pitt Wenninger.
GAME Two roles: the dominant, and the submissive.< GOAL To create an intensive culture shift in the submissive’s subconscious and lived architecture IRL. TRACE FB Messenger discourse / digital dialogues and two Word documents. The documents were required to be the truth, everything else could be fictional, lied, real or played.
The exhibition is formulated around a game which was played over digital and live platforms in October and ending in February, where a dialogue on FB messenger becomes the trace element which was then re-enacted for live for the show. The installation then transformed the gallery, with a looped 21 minute audio work by OMSK Social Club & Vonverhille, which allowed the viewer to “eavesdrop over the players’ private games and the soundtrack.”**
