Le contraddizioni della fragilità

Overview

Eduardo Secci gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the group show Le contraddizioni della fragilità, curated by Angel Moya Garcia, on Thursday, September 9, 2021 (4.00 pm – 8.00 pm), in Florence (Piazza Carlo Goldoni 2, Italy), featuring works by Diana Al-Hadid, Alejandro Almanza Pereda, Andrea Galvani, José Carlos Martinat, and Matthew Ritchie.

The exhibition focuses on the theme of fragility and its declinations, exploring the contradictions that conceal behind its definition analyzing the different contexts where the term has been used: society, culture, economics, science, and philosophy. A series of meanings and interpretations wherein the fragility is considered in its derogatory connotation inviting us to contemplate it as doubt and uncertainty, fail and its acceptance or weakness of our beliefs. This ancestral and hypothetical antagonism caused by the sharp opposition between fragility and stability or durability is questioned by the show pointing out infinite possibilities of mistakes, the superficiality of certain categorical reflections, and prejudices of our principles in chasing absolute objectivity that allows us to reach a definitive emotional, cognitive, and identity stability.
