Xo of Excess ssaliva/Early Holography/AllPass/Hasar de Doria organised by Diesel project space December 9th 2016, 4 - 9pm Exo Exo, Paris
‘xo of excess’ is a sort of speculative fiction in sound and image, dealing with the dawning of the Anthropocene, defined by scholars as the epoch of humankind. Between the dream of ‘low carbon future’ & other ‘theories of catastrophism’, what is the future of the next generation? Subsumed into the digital realm, have we reached hyperreality yet?
From these questions, the exhibition presented an ostentatious display of installations & live performances, a tracking list about the issue of identity in an economy of excess, leading us to the question of life and death in a world built by man and technology.
