Fragmental Museum

Fragmental Museum Contemporary Art Site Specific Projects/Exhibitions The Fragmental is dedicated to carrying out unusual site-specific installations and creating original exhibitions in which the shifting linkages between fragments of time, space and culture have been challenged, collapsed and reconstructed-brought to life somewhat differently.

Artistic Networks The Fragmental also fosters creative and commercial networks among upcoming artists, grassroots art institutions, artist residencies and fringe art fairs between the United States, Western Europe and East Asia. Curatorial Research The Fragmental is dedicated to carrying out inter-disciplinary research, weaving in aspects of contemporary art, architecture, art history, philosophy and social anthropology into seamless textual, visual and oral discourse/narrative in both French and English. Publications The Museum is on the constant look out for quirky, untapped literary and art publications to distribute within handpicked bookstores and museums across New York City. It will also be embarking on producing its own bi-annual publication, a distinctly visual and literary curatorial experience, whose theme and creative slant will reflect the Museum's overriding mission of redefining the slippery linkages between snippets of time, space and culture.

Mission: Fragmental Museum is a seamless platform for creating, developing and showcasing fresh inter-disciplinary curatorial research, site-specific exhibitions, artistic networks and publications across fluid notions of time, space and culture.

Fragmental Museum and Pioneer Works were pleased to present House to House II, an exhibition of work by Jeanne Susplugas that furthers and deepens the artist’s investigation into the human condition and its psychological, physical, and behavioral excesses. In House to House II, Jeanne Susplugas delves into the concept of home: its representation, its functional and emotional significance, and its impact on the individual. In the collective imagination, the house is the primary shelter for the body, its loved ones, and its possessions. The house is a home: the site of intimacy, of treasures, memories, secrets, and unspoken words. In exploring the tension between the house as a protective space and the house as an alienating space, the artist demonstrates the binary nature of our relationship with home, and uncovers the blurred and shady spaces of our daily existence.

Adages and proverbs tied to the domestic space run rampant. But Jeanne Susplugas manages to overthrow the customary platitudes. House to House II investigates questions of mobility, relocation, and their subsequent traumas—separation, uprooting, adaptation, and novelty—in asking individuals to list the objects they would save in an emergency. What do we store in our wardrobes, our suitcases, and drawers? How do we fill a home?

And is it a house or a prison? In the video There’s No Place Like Home, Jeanne Susplugas exposes the alienating character of home. A woman incants the title’s emblematic phrase over and over in an effort to convince both herself and the public of this universal (counter-) truth. We are reminded that being home does not always mean being safe, or being well. Home can be suffocating, can be sick.

In her video Iatrgoène, Jeanne Susplugas delves into our medical consumption, our addictions, our needs, and our treatments. Iatrgoène takes the form of a conversation among friends in a Parisian café. The three actors chat about the desired and undesired effects of the drugs that have infiltrated our lives: medicines that serve both as medical necessity and as psychological crutch. Our bathrooms fill up with the boxes, bottles, and syringes that hold the chemical answer to our sicknesses, anxieties, and depressions. The artist empties such containers of their functional contents and removes their names, transforming them into precious ceramic objects. Thus they become a part of our literary vocabulary as in F. Beigbeder’s phrase: “So then you go home, medicate, and cease to dream.” Tranquilizers become commonplace, entering our speech, our homes, our bodies.

And so, thus invaded, we move forward through our intimate and social worlds, each to his own, masked, armed, impoverished, strong, and vulnerable.

Jeanne Susplugas displaces the habitual, and pulls out that which is habitually concealed behind four walls.

This May at the cutlog contemporary art fair, the Fragmental Museum will present Amazon Luxuries, a solo exhibition of two ongoing series by Jordan Doner. Both projects document the dissolution of objects the artist sees as embodying social aspirations—pyrotechnicians explode “status” handbags in the Consumer series, while a parrot shreds pages from fashion and soft-core magazines in the Amazon Nesting series. Traces from these acts of simultaneous material destruction and art production will compose Amazon Luxuries, including large format photographs, physical remnants and appearances by Doner’s Amazon parrots.
