MOUTHS OF ILLUSION

BEYOND THE MACHINE

  Video + Physical Installation

New Zealand Fringe Festival 2020

SAT 29 FEBRUARY to SUN 15 MARCH 2020

37 COURTENAY PLACE, WELLINGTON CITY

[Courtenay Studios -  10 am to 10 pm every day

 

Wellington + Sydney video artists, musicians, sculptors, writers, actors NICHOLAS KEALEY and NICHOLAS FROST

Where public space for art is competitive, cliquey or tendentious, we critique the character of MACHINE – 

the technological, consumerist, medial, cultural, spiritualist paradigms and propagandas of this culture.

Cut-through soundbites – MANTRAS told by big-brother guru faces – soothe a world of minimum attention-span, instant body-soul gratification, conformism to utopian beliefs, need to be ‘liked’, want for continuous superficial happiness without its necessary opposites. Big-scale VIDEO plus text, sculpture and sound deliver obsessive messaging. Sensory-emotive-intellectual lures deliver the ironies of hypnosis and alienation.

 

Gratify your transcendent wanting with hypnotic wise cool propagandist dystopian machine MANTRA THERAPY.
