IZP Estek/ Farkas Gergő Dávid: Deep Fake
On the verge of my new ever-fluctuating body, at the junction of clouds of stimuli & steams of emotions, at the times of virulent dances - where do I stand politically & lustfully?
What do I see?
Phantasmagory or Harmony?
I do not have to answer all these spams from the monarchs of Distant Voids, or do I?
What if they need my help for real?
New prophecies retold and expanded figured largely in town. No one is capable of stopping them
from gaining more.
Hm. A mythic time.
Deep Fake invites you to a series of events speculating upon unoriginal forces, the force of the unoriginal, and dreaming about an alternative evolution in which usage is replaced by coexistence.
Deep Fake is maintained by Gergő Dávid Farkas, Endre Cserna, Márton Csernovszky, Kata Dézsi, Dániel Kophelyi, Gergely Ofner and Imre Vass and the Sín Arts and Culture Center
The performance is english friendly.

We descend hand-in-hand to the heart of the mountain, leaving any emotions behind. The familiar pathways of the mind lead to a wet, deep, warm darkness. Our trail is paved by a thin, reflective membrane — we fall into a time-trap as we cross it. We enter ourselves as we set foot "out there". It happens to us but we do it to ourselves. We freeze the future and melt the past, then in reverse. The pick-up is jumping back and forth on the nonlinear timeline of our memory. Tissues of intricately twirled, dystopian fragments emerge: familiar forms of madness, pleasurable traces of decay. We hide in the details, read among the lines, but the image remains undecipherable.
The participants show new works among reinterpretations of already existing ones, exhibiting large-scale, immersive and complex installations in the cave system of AQB — formerly used for limestone mining —, which hosts an exhibition for the first time in its existence.
Enter / exit at your own risk.
