Solo exhibition “Quissac”
Fellow Yalda Afsah will celebrate the opening of her solo exhibition Quissac this Thursday at FRAGILE here in Berlin. The exhibition brings together two films that were developed in relation to each other, their location both being a small town in the South of France where the narrative follows a bizarre sequence of bullfights.
The films “Vidourle” and “Tourneur” both portray and fictionalize the setting for expressions of supposed dominance between human and animal, gestures of provoked violence and performed masculinity. Between strategies of construction and reality scenes unfold in which man and animal, rage and performance collapse into one another.
Opening: 6 July 2019, 5-9pm
Exhibition: 6 to 24 July 2019
