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.
