According to the Japanese philosophy of kintsugi, when a ceramic breaks, one glues it back together again leaving the fissures visible, so the breaks become part of the object’s history rather than not something to hide. For “Fragment,” the pieces are not sewn back together again; they are left in pieces.
Coming after the well-received duel show of Mette Tommerup and Karen Rifas, Dorsch is returning this winter with a group show that features some of the more exciting artists around who work in photography, painting and sculpture—Jenny Brillhart, Yanira Collado (yes, with the solo show at Under the Bridge), Khaulah Naima Nuruddin, Ryan Roa, Leyden Rodiguez-Casanova, James Sprang, Robert Thiele and Paula Wilson. Each will add their own “fragments.” Through March 23.
