Waking up between the requisites of innumerable names. Arbitrariness of visibility paired with the hierarchisation of the fast-pace attention economy, automated operative letters, content beyond embodied perception.
The no longer and not yet to be. Untold. In a short moment one is clipping a name, grasping for breath. How come I have never heard of you?
In Tale of delusion, the Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory collective claims an anti-narcissistic approach of dehierarchising the codes of legitimacy in the perspective of feminist, female*, and non-binary artists. It is doing so by means of a programmed bot that is searching and displaying the names of those* artists found on-line. A female professional singer is empowering its visibility through her loud voice. The data bank is open to the audience to contribute.
Tale of delusion is constructing a symbiosis of the visible and the vulnerable, manifesting the recurrent ambiguity of human control.
