From vessel to vessel: Cristine Brache’s I Love Me, I Love Me Not opens in New York, Feb 10

, 9 February 2017

Cristine Brache presents solo exhibition I Love Me, I Love Me Not at New York’s Fierman opening February 10 to March 19.

The press release takes the form of a long annotation by manuel arturo abreu who moves between first person subjectivity and a factual distance through footnotes that connect the two artists. 

“With each pass, from vessel to vessel.6 
6 Brache presents works that speak to the coloniality of mestizx identity, with its simultaneous assimilatory striving and inexorable sense of loss: a maple domino table with colonial-style legs features porcelain Hoyle-clone playing cards instead of dominos on the raised playing area, which has been coated in the “flesh” tones of silicone.”
Alongside will also be an afternoon of poetry readings at Fierman on February 11 at 2pm by Brache, Rin Johnson, Jameson Fitzpatrick, and Cat Tyc.

See the Fierman Gallery website for details.**
