Columbine Cafeteria is the second solo exhibition that Rogers has had with the Berlin gallery, following Columbine Library in 2014, where the artist’s book of poems Cunny Poems —bringing together distance and intimacy in each of its individual fragments —was read aloud by an avatar of Rogers in a video projected in the space, among prints and a large shelf of stuffed toys and accessorised children’s backpacks.
There is little information surrounding Columbine Cafeteria, but we might assume it extends the artist’s exploration of the idolisation and fetishisation, both personally and societally, of the shooter and victims in the continued aftermath of the famous 1999 Columbine High School massacre.
Société’s homepage is currently taken over by an image that looks curiously like a Rogers digital drawing, which might give a clue to the tone of the coming show.
See the Société website for (limited) details.**
