Part of MTD-Legacy Festival
Deep Fake is a series of events which speculate upon copy, inauthenticity, and challenge the consumerist mindset with new possibilities of coexistence.
The piece challenges the monocracy of the solo format by gently directing the spectator’s attention to the decentralised performance of sound, light, and object, turning the space into a living and breathing entity. By approaching the body as an apparatus driven by impulses and emotions, Deep Fake investigates the collapsing borders between the living and the inorganic, the existing and the unreal, with the structures that secretly (re)produce these binaries.
As the lovechild of cross-disciplinary aspirations and millennial greed, Deep Fake extends its invisible tentacles from the stage to the interwebs and takes over the two euro domain deep-fake.world to become virtual and remain virtually immortal.
The work has been chosen to be a part of the Aerowaves Twenty22 selection.
You also find the trailer here, the page of the work with more information here and our website deep-fake.world here.
‘Deep Fake’ by Gergo Farkas is co-presented by ICK Artist Space as presenting partner of Aerowaves Network. This performance is made possible with financial support by ICK Amsterdam/Artist Space and co-funded by Creative Europe.
