The exhibition’s title Desiring Machines, unequivocally refers to the term elaborated in a more recent theory by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, but it also encourages us to think about mysterious relations between machine and body, while re-examining the point of passage between existence or non existence of the sensitive boundaries between the natural and artificial, physical and digital, fiction and reality, individual and general, private and public. The exhibition offers new insights into how “machines” have reformulated life, providing the viewers a slightly paradoxical experience of the digital realm and hybrid communication, as they are invited to use their smart phones to access a digital database of, for this purpose specially created application and browse information on the displayed works, artists and exhibition.
