Malachi Farrell et Doctor L
Collateral Fiction24 - 25 Oct 2014
The event is over
Malachi Farrell creates animated machines equipped with electronic circuits, combining the precision of cutting-edge technologies with the ingenuity of "doing things on the fly". In this way, he composes spectacular stagings that immerse visitors in a whirlwind of sounds and images, full of emotion. Associating the processes of popular entertainment in a surprising way with a critical discourse on the violence of societies or the power of the media, he renews the position of the politically committed artist as a maverick, evoking both the magical sculptures of Tinguely and the burlesque of Charlie Chaplin. Consisting of five suspended crazy mechanical works, his installation combines recycled, diverted and manufactured elements with sound and light. At the heart of this contemporary fable, visitors are relentlessly made aware of their duty to make a personal commitment, faced with the brutality of the world.
