Mehdi Dahkan-Subject To
Biletler Satışta Biletino'da!
'Subject too' is a research on the principle of idealization and on the way desire can be generated in an unconscious way by a collective influence. It raises the question of whether we can be forced to desire something? Perhaps not directly, but could it be that I desire what is desired by those around me? Does this make the act of desiring a simple response to a deeper need (desire) to belong?
It becomes more interesting when we add the factor of time, to wait - I am intrigued by the contrast between the internal chaos that desire creates and the physical silence that waiting imposes, which puts one in a state of impasse.
