Melancholy is not enough…15 December, 2011 - 19 February, 2012EXHIBITIONOPENING: Thursday, December 15, 2011, 19.00CHAIN LETTER

"A sorrowful pleasure", according to Bulgarian-French theorist Julia Kristeva, melancholy is assumed to exclude any action. Besieged by one's grievous state, one can't react with or against this all-pervasive affective condition. Turning away from deliberately finding pleasure in overpowering sentiments and environments, as the melancholic subject is expected to in most conceptualizations of her state, the artists in this exhibition subvert the looming of melancholia into delight, relentlessly relating the physical places they navigate to the mental states they desire to appropriate.
