Paris’ Shanaynay is hosting group show, Les négligences volontaires, opening March 29 and running April 17.
The artists in the show whose title translates to ‘wilful negligence’ are Kim Farkas whose text pdfs like ‘Interior Day‘ circle around the experience of taking on information, Tetsumi Kudo, Kim Ye and London-based painter Nada Baraka who makes ‘fractals’ and series that refuse to become something whole or finite.
There is little information as to the exhibition’s narrative apart from a short excerpt-cum-press release quoting fashion designer Marc Jacobs talking about watching his mother put on her make up before going on dates in a video starring actress Winona Ryder. He tells a sweet but striking image of her scraping the velvet fluff from her black ribbon and using it to buffer her eyelashes before going on to express his thoughts about the human nature of transformation and “the joy of a being a woman, or a man, or a person. [Atmospheric piano solo fades out]”.
