Installation and video game — Osmo/za, Ljubljana — 2023
with Sara Bezovšek
The exhibition What’s Your Truth: Tipping Point is a continuation of a long-term project by Sara Bezovšek and Dorijan Šiško in which the artists explore the ideas of contemporary postinternet society and the logic of video games.
The project What’s Your Truth (WYT) questions the practical effects of postmodern relativism while flirting with the consequences of the fragmentation of social consensus and the proliferation of “truths” that characterise society and politics in the age of the internet, algorithmic profiling and social media. In a new chapter entitled Tipping Point, the WYT gaming experience is updated with elements that respond to current socio-political situations, and the space of the video game spills over into the space of the exhibition. The gallery and its “reality” are just another (non-privileged) piece of the iceberg, one part of this world of “many truths” in which everyone chooses/reveals their own. The informational-ideological path of this gaming mission and at the same time personality test leads to several possible conclusions – different mutually exclusive truths – which the player with his/her choices not only determines but also co-shapes, reinforces, and further disseminates.
