Valinia Svoronou @ Frankfurt am Main, Aug 14 - Sep 11

, 11 August 2016

Valinia Svoronou is presenting solo exhibition The glow pt 2: gravity regimes at Berlin’s Frankfurt am Main, opening August 14 running through September 11.

The show by the London-based artist is curated by Rachel Walker and is the second part to The glow pt 1. There is little information on both aside from the poetic text written around the motion of bodies occupying a space in a rave setting:

“She feels herself collapsing slowly in a painful demise. The salt breeze caresses her skin and the ripples of her dress flutter gently as her sinuous movements make her one with the other bodies. The pulsating motion is exhausting, the weight of the crowd bears down on the shore like a contagious wave of grounding sorrow making the ground sink.

The glow sticks attached to her wrist are like handcuffs binding her to her surroundings. In a few hours they will be spent. The glow from the rave leaks like radiation from the mass of bodies. The natural movements of the soul obey laws analogous to those of physical gravity. Grace is the only exception. Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which supplies this void.”
