The public program Tampered Emotions – Lust for Dust accompanies the exhibition Vos désirs sont les nôtres. On 29 & 30, June the participating artists are invited for presentations, performances, and exchange with writers and theorists around desire and violence, and the affections of the intimate by the mutilations of life. This program conceived by Lotte Arndt will be closed on 1, July, 2018, by a book release by artist Liv Schulman, an evening of projections and a performative lecture by the artist Roee Rosen, event organized in collaboration with FIDMarseille and the [MAC] Museum of Contemporary Art of the City of Marseille at Mucem. In the beginning of September 2018, during the fair Art-o-rama a performance will close the program.

In the backstage areas of global trade ec-static subjectivities decompose into sweating skins. The air is heavy with far traveled smells, overwhelming, asphyxiating. The state stands stiff, stamps forms, wiggles bars and barriers, raises banners, and proclaims in strong voice willful redemption, but the sound is too loud. The film may be from last year and everybody gets bored. With surprising certitude, the remote corners of the abject selves walk in; they are vested in hairy dresses. As on a sign given to them, they gather in a crowd, accelerate the gestures of their toxic habits, until they loose heir contours and morph into liquid flows, leaving behind only prosthetic parts of their luxuriously shining bodies. From beyond, trembling wills without Visa cross borders as theft. They move closely tied to each other, while, nearby, she sits motionless on her own and smokes another hundred smuggled cigarettes. She has abandoned to wait long ago. She rather takes the backdoor. She’d rather not…. Here, passing is a mode of survival and dream comes as a kleptomaniac.

Curated by Marie de Gaulejac and Céline Kopp

What is most desirable, what is more restrictive? The flesh is the contact zone. Bodies as objects, painted bodies, stretched bodies, soft bodies, bodies present or bodies absent, are shaping or dissolving onto hard, cold, angular, insensitive, and even political surfaces. With the pulse of the city of Marseille in the background, the works presented – some of them especially produced for the occasion – evoke in turn the troubled desires, the pulsion of control and doubt facing authority. A tangle of confused introspections, blurred expectations, nebulous or fictional narratives and squeaky humor.
