This evening, the Goethe Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai and Project 88 will host Desire Machine Collective’s (DMC) first solo exhibition in India. Noise Life is DMC’s new video and sound work, historicising the representation of Assam. In it, the artist duo engages French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s term ‘schizoanalysis’, which privileges empirical sensation and intensity over meaning.
More personal than other works by DMC, the piece points to excessive states of perception occurring in exceptional experiences of blindness or deafness. The work overwhelms the viewer with a chaos of sensations, and attempts to convey how we make complex sense of our lives and express our experiences.
While the videos will be displayed at Project 88, DMC continues their engagement with schizoanalysis at Galerie Max Mueller by using hundreds of photographic works of a single motion to create the illusion of movement. Additionally, Alt-rock band Digital Suicide will perform at Galerie Max Mueller at 6.15 pm during the opening.
Head to Galerie Max Mueller, Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai, Kalaghoda, at 6.00 pm, and 7.30 pm at Project 88, BMP building, NA Sawant Marg, Colaba.
