“I’ll be there for you”: When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year at Weekends

The installation featured contributions by Sofia Duchovny, Brian Khek, Søren Kierkegaard, Kiki Kogelnik, Ann Lislegaard, Victor Lizana and Philipp Timischl, spanning new media, sculpture, and interventions in the space. With what the press release describes as “a whole heart full of hope and a path through the darkness,” the exhibition brings together both living and dead artists, evoking a sense of collectiveness and (dis)connect between each varied practice.

With little external information about the show, aside from 90s to early-noughties Friends theme song-referencing title, the press release includes an excerpt by Kierkegaard that contextualises the show:

“Despair is a Sickness in the Spirit, in the Self, and So It May Assume a Triple Form:
in Despair at Not Being Conscious of Having a Self;
in Despair at Not Willing to Be Oneself;
in Despair at Willing to Be Oneself.”

Run by artist Rasmus Myrup, Weekends is currently located in the space of Paris’ New Galerie, in between their regularly scheduled program, but is a roaming curatorial project set in ‘seasons’. This show is the fifth season, and have previously shown across cities in Europe, including an apartment in Copenhagen and London.**

The ‘When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year’ exhibition was on at Paris’ Weekends, running March 10 to 25, 2017.
