03/09/2019

Williams’ ongoing Eurydice project confronts the crisis of metaphorical entanglements around the aesthetic and political intersections of loss and inspiration, the ‘coming into being of artistic gestures’, echo, form, and mimesis as instances of the formal gathering of significant agential loss for the black subject. This full performance, stemming from a series of videos, collages, sculptures, and floral arrangements, makes porous the relationship between “black identity” and “mainstream culture.” The Greek myth of Eurydice is a vehicle for Williams’ inquiry into the subjects of a racialized imagination and its subsequent logics, by staging a structured engagement of blackness and spectacle within a mythic pre-Socratic configuration of the underworld. This installment will follow Orpheus from his loss of Eurydice into the hands of the Maenads.

The performance is developed in dialog with Bracha L. Ettinger, features movement by Josh Johnson and music by Patrick Belaga.

She had been craving this feeling for a while. A hungry bitch, like an itch you can't scratch. It was her time, finally, the girls were waiting and the airbnb was just perfect.

FRAGILE is pleased to announce Dese Escobar’s first solo exhibition in Europe, More In The Morning.

Driven by desire, we find ourselves searching for the other, slinking in the DM’s, between filtered bodies in pinterest settings, on staycation in curated cities, online and abroad.
Escobar’s celebratory and glamorously inclusive practice, might just be the party where these expressive bodies are allowed to tell their stories, on the exhale, grinding, cross-pollinating on a cruise boat floating through glittering reflections of the New York City skyline down the Hudson river. Reenacting this feeling within a multifaceted performative and whimsical setting Dese Escobar’s installation bridges between the getaway, the selfies of getting ready, and the esthetical infusions we are exposed to in our highly influenced lives, just enough to guide us through the night. Every bubble sliding upwards along your thighs in the pink bubble bath just makes the anxiety pop, filling the air with a steamy scent of community, leaving traces of foundation on the wall like tributes to the self in memory of the makeup kit on the nightstand.

More In The Morning is a narrative of the euphoric after hour, moments rising like the sun post Club Glam, preparation, ecstasy, and hangover collapsed in a sweet collage of bodies mingling, and the so familiar itinerant self longing for a kiss on pride night.

FRAGILE is pleased to announce the solo exhibition Quissac by Yalda Afsah.

The exhibition brings together two films that were developed in relation to each other, their location both being a small town in the south of France where the narrative follows a bizarre sequence of bullfights.
The films “Vidourle” and “Tourneur” both portray and fictionalize the setting for expressions of supposed dominance between human and animal, gestures of provoked violence and performed masculinity. Between strategies of construction and reality scenes unfold in which man and animal, rage and performance collapse into one another.

In Yalda Afsah’s video Vidourle, 2019, a mass of youngsters sift around in murky water, stirring with anticipation. One wears a statement T-shirt that reads, “DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE.” What’s the hype? We don’t know. As the boys run out of the frame, waves glistening, the video cuts to a ...

FRAGILE is pleased to announce the solo exhibition Parkstück by Sung Tieu. Tieu contends with notions of social identity and demarcation and analyses transnational movements of people and objects —be it through the investigation of diaspora communities or the commercial, hyperaccelerated ways that global capitalism is reproduced. Parkstück is the third part of a trilogy of exhibitions; Loveless, 2019 at Piper Keys (London) and Formative Years on Dearth, 2019 at The Yard, Parrhesiades and Flat Time House (all in London), comprising the first two.

FRAGILE presents the first solo exhibition in Germany by the US-American artist Sean Mullins (born 1993 in New Jersey, US). Informed by the history of painting and its enclosing mythologies Mullins readdresses the underlying narratives of image making in their variety. In the work both painting and writing are deployed as means to set up a condition of reality. They come to us like a tablet, presenting scenarios, a foreshadowing or an anonymous myth that we can´t name but seem to be strangely familiar with the characters in its story.

In it the sky over the Hudson Valley is similar to the one of two hundred years ago, but this time Uncle Sam fractured his head growing tired of wanting you for anything and the burden over his own embodiment of a national tale. Figures of speed have been reincarnated through time, there’s Hermes, the flash from DC comic books and a figuration of Paul Virilio. In place of Odin hanging himself on Yggdrasil, is an open subject in the arms of Thor, seeking a knowledge perhaps only permissible through death. Through the metrics of representation, “now” becomes liminal, figures of myth, and those of certainty index simultaneous tangibility.
