The sixth installment of Like A Wild Beast’s Fur is a collaboration between LAWBF and canadian artist Justin Wu and will be shown in New York’s Wallplay Gallery and the Kantine am Berghain in Berlin.
Fictional concepts of identity are an alarming trend in our digital day and age. Social networks and digital platforms endorse the curation and fostering of the self, creating an army of supercharged avatars. Inspired by the Desiring Machine of Gilles Deleuze, this installation carries the title Fabricated Freedom.
The international collaboration of Justin Wu and LAWBF uses interactive sound created by the italian artists DAVIDE LUCIANI and FABIO PERLETTA (MOTE Studio, Berlin). The scripted space debuts in New York’s Wallplay Gallery on the 20th of November and confronts the extinction of the individual.
Fabricated Freedom then travels to Berlin for an all-night showcase in the spaces of Berlin’s infamous Berghain complex on the 29th ofNovember, transforming the Kantine into a visual-art-installation meets club-concept.The physical installations for the Berlin issue of Fabricated Freedom will be supervised by LAWBF’s resident visual artist, MORITZ GREWENIG.
The Berlin showcase is hybrid in nature, merging an immersive visual experience with cutting edge music: the Vernissage will be opened by experimental soundscapes assembled by KOBOSIL. The young Berlin-based producer just debuted his LP We grow, you decline on OstGut Ton and is making a mark for himself.
Things will move towards more club-oriented hybridity with a live-set by composer and avant-garde siren Friederike Bernhardt, who alongside with Johannes Cotta, will perform as BERNHARDT. . A special brand of dystopian sound will be contributed by MILES WHITTAKER of Demdike Stare fame – a perfect match for the apocalyptic urban Zeitgeist. Finally, LAWBF will finish off the night with a three-headed attack, their knowledge for narratives serving them well as residents.
It is at work everywhere, functioning smoothly at times, at other times in fits and starts. It breathes, it heats, it eats. It shits and fucks. What a mistake to have ever said the id. Everywhere it is machines—real ones.“- Gilles Deleuze
