DESE ESCOBARMore In The Morning
28 JULY - 11 AUG 2019Opening: 27 JULY 2019, 6 - 10 pm
She had been craving this feeling for a while. A hungry bitch, like an itch you can't scratch. It was her time, finally, the girls were waiting and the airbnb was just perfect. FRAGILE is pleased to announce Dese Escobar’s first solo exhibition in Europe, More In The Morning.Driven by desire, we find ourselves searching for the other, slinking in the DM’s, between filtered bodies in pinterest settings, on staycation in curated cities, online and abroad. Escobar’s celebratory and glamorously inclusive practice, might just be the party where these expressive bodies are allowed to tell their stories, on the exhale, grinding, cross-pollinating on a cruise boat floating through glittering reflections of the New York City skyline down the Hudson river. Reenacting this feeling within a multifaceted performative and whimsical setting Dese Escobar’s installation bridges between the getaway, the selfies of getting ready, and the esthetical infusions we are exposed to in our highly influenced lives, just enough to guide us through the night. Every bubble sliding upwards along your thighs in the pink bubble bath just makes the anxiety pop, filling the air with a steamy scent of community, leaving traces of foundation on the wall like tributes to the self in memory of the makeup kit on the nightstand. More In The Morning is a narrative of the euphoric after hour, moments rising like the sun post Club Glam, preparation, ecstasy, and hangover collapsed in a sweet collage of bodies mingling, and the so familiar itinerant self longing for a kiss on pride night.
