Desire Machine Collective comprising of Mriganka Madhukaliya and Sonal Jain, are emerging as the most innovative experimental film-makers in India. Their masterful short film, Residue was curated by Sandhini Poddar as part of the Being Singular Plural:Moving Images of India show at the Deutsch Guggenheim Museum in 2012.
Blending into the rhizomatic nature of the Project 88 gallery space Noise Life, following the heals of their masterly Residue, engages with modern singularities and virtual possibilities of a part of the world, i.e. North East India. Being able to confuse the high modern to Lyotard's dictum of the post-modern, the work creates a new becoming unseen in South East Asian art, merging sacral and profane but at the same time not doing away with ideology.
