BALTIC’s new exhibition from Sahej Rahal, Mythmachine, is a body of work actively exploring the concept of play and challenging our understanding of what it means to be a player, transforming the space in response to visitors over time.

From Saturday 24th September until September 2023, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the many forms of art that Sahej Rahal has developed, including sculpture, performance, film, installations and AI programmes. The work responds to chance and luck, weaving together new mythologies and questioning contemporary narratives.

Sahej Rahal’s focus is as a storyteller, and he has created this virtual playground as a way to blend both fact and fiction as well as of countering preconceptions and altering the present. Influenced by many areas, including science fiction and the ancient world, there is something familiar and futuristic in the works presented.

Mythmachine is an exhibition of research, response and continued alteration, developing and showcasing a possible future of both the human and non-human in innovative ways, including speech, song and rhythm, resulting in a unique exhibition and experiment.

Sahej Rahal: Mythmachine is at BALTIC, Gateshead from Saturday 24th September-Sunday 3rd September 2023.
