-------------------------------------------
Fragile encounters are those going beyond an established definition, they cannot be easily captured. They allude to delicate ties between various entities and their frames of reference.The very act of the encounter can be particularly related to not knowing, meaning not knowing yet what makes it immanently fragile. It has the potential to enable the disintegration of the gazes of the supposed omniscience, seeking new parameters of proximity and distance.Can art be the place where fragile encounters are possible, audible, tangible within material and immaterial environments? Where can a fragile encounter take us, or where can we move it? How meandering are its courses, how visible and accessible are its locations? Can its echo create a place to escape the familiar categories that define how we relate to what is co-existing?This leads us to consider what the current state of the world means for art, on a planet that is in the midst of a paradigm shift due to the systems created by human beings. This planetary spin makes us aware that we humans are a geological force.Asking ourselves about how far away is close enough for a person to choose not only to define knowledge, but to immerse himself in creating new and improbable ones.The works gathered in Mirjam Kroker's exhibition fragile encounters offer us an invitation to the commitment to inhabit them, to explore their circumstances and experience their transformed and enabling environment. This space becomes a research area that encourages them, eluding general knowledge, that proposes to meet personal things. In a conceptual framework where everything you do matters no matter / where everything you do is important no matter what you do what you do, as long as it remains open to change, transit, solidify, volatilize, condense… in short, explore its materiality.The works maintain an open concept, they do not want to define their findings. They resonate, circulate and some constellations mutate during the exhibition in the hope that the encounters arising within such invented temporary landscape will resonate within and beyond the gallery walls, in worlds in which their coexistence remains always unexpected.Now more than ever, we need to spread opportunities where fragile encounters can happen and resonate / find an echo.

MIRJAM KROKER

Mirjam Kroker (1982)
De base seminómada, con formación académica en Antropología Social y Cultural y Bellas
Artes. Interesada en el proceso de adquirir, producir, coproducir, adaptar, habitar, transferir,
integrar, reflexionar y difundir diferentes formas de saber. Se acerca a la creación artística
como una práctica situada y, por lo tanto, viaja y trabaja en varios lugares y, a veces, se acerco
a la investigación en colaboración y busca trabajar más allá de las disciplinas.
Su trabajo ha sido reconocido a través de varias subvenciones y becas, como la subvención
de investigación IFA, la Sociedad de Investigación Austriaca ÖFG, el Programa de Becas
Sajón, la subvención de viaje STEP BEYOND, entre otros, y apoyado a través de programas
internacionales de artistas en residencia como cultureland nl, Amsterdam y Residencia en la
isla de Örö, Finlandia.
La forma de trabajar de Mirjam es multimodal, basada en la investigación y se extiende desde
grabaciones sónicas, dibujos de documentos, secuencias de video y objetos, hasta entornos
de trabajo y narrativas espaciales. Con tendencia a las ideas conceptuales y al pensamiento
imaginativo, aborda las obras de arte como dispositivos para pensar con todo el ser y potencial
para reconfigurar pequeños detalles de la realidad.
Los esfuerzos colaborativos de colaboración on/off que ella cofundó como miembro, para
buscar trabajar juntos más allá de las limitaciones geográficas mientras se encuentran en
ubicaciones geográficas dispares, se hicieron accesibles para un público más amplio por
invitación del Museo Casa del LAGO en México. Ciudad en 2016.
Su trabajo fue reconocido a través del Premio Caspar David Friedrich 2019 y el Premio Federal
de Arte “Bunderspreis für Kunststudierende”. Así como el apoyo actual a través de recibir una
beca del estado sajón por un período de 2 años.

Interested in the process of acquiring, producing, co-producing, adapting, inhabiting,
transferring, integrating, reflecting and disseminating different ways of knowing. He
approaches artistic creation as a situated practice and thus travels and works in various places
and sometimes approaches collaborative research and seeks to work across disciplines.
His work has been recognized through various grants and scholarships, such as the IFA
Research Grant, the Austrian Research Society ÖFG, the Saxon Scholarship Program, the
STEP BEYOND Travel Grant, among others, and supported through international programs.

Mirjam’s way of working is multimodal, research-based and extends from sonic recordings,
document drawings, video sequences and objects, to working environments and spatial
narratives. With a tendency to conceptual ideas and imaginative thinking, she approaches
works of art as devices to think with the whole being and potential to reconfigure small
details of reality.
The collaborative on/off collaborative efforts that she co-founded as a member, to seek to
work together beyond geographic limitations while in disparate geographic locations, were
made accessible to a wider audience at the invitation of the Museo Casa del LAGO in Mexico.
