On April 26th, 8pm, Mettler and Negarestani will have a public conversation via video-conference at the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne. The conversation will focus on how our most intimate corporeal and psychological constitutions have vertiginous proximities with the Earth’s cosmological history, and how we are bound through backdoor narratives and subtle complicities to the most liveless materials.

As the exhibition of the reconstruction of an exploratory oil rig in 1929 in Switzerland is heading toward its end, the installation is now covered with printed sheets, each representing a diverging narrative of the rig accumulated over time. Every two weeks a new session was published, a transcript of an analysis of Patient O by The Rig, further immersing the legacy of the rig and the modern landscape of the Pays de Vaud into more convoluted depths. The analysis ended with session VII, published on April 19th.

The fictitious dialogue is a collaboration between philosopher Reza Negarestani and artist Yves Mettler, whose architectonic sound installations focus on our built environment, bringing into light ruins, memories and fragmented narratives left on the roadside of our heterogeneous cultural history.
