Neil Beloufa “L’Ennemi de mon ennemi” Solo Exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, Paris

Neil Beloufa's solo exhibition L’Ennemi de mon ennemi  is a curation of works, historical documents, war museum artifacts, and found objects that assemble a telling of history and explore the lingering ambiguity of perspective. Beloufa organizes these objects kinetically, attaching them to constantly moving robots to create a fragmented and shifting narrative. The show is on view this Friday, February 16 through May 13 at Palais de Tokyo.

Candice Lin “A Hard White Body, a Soft White Worm” solo exhibition at Portikus, Frankfurt

Candice Lin's  A Hard White Body, a Soft White Worm at Portikus is her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. The show is a coproduction with last year's A Hard White Body at Bétonsalon, Paris, newly presenting the porcelain remnants of the latter's previous form. Continuing on the woven histories of James Baldwin, the African American writer and social critic, and Jeanne Baret, the French botanist and sailor, the scene at Portikus presents these stories as fragmented pieces, precariously visible as glimpses of a whole.
