CURRENT EXHIBITION @ GALLERY 102

Yacine Fall: Looking For God

Joshua Citarella Solo Show Exhibition Poster

 

WASHINGTON DC - Gallery 102 is proud to present the final Summer Solo exhibition entitled, Yacine Fall: Looking For God. The exhibition combines installation, performance, and video work — all newly produced for Gallery 102. During the opening, Fall will perform a work involving top soil native to the DC region. In addition, the exhibition will feature video work shot during Fall's recent trip to Maine.

The exhibition is not merely a celestial search for the spiritual, but rooted in the terrestrial. Fall’s practice is highly personal. Looking for God is a lived reality for her, a real-time spiritual transformation. She draws from Sufism in Dakar, Senegal, a mystical sect of Islam, and places the body and the environment at the forefront of accessing and interacting with god. As Professor Nicole Ivy writes in her catalogue essay for the exhibition, Fall’s work invites her audience to see “the manifestation of the holy in the terrestrial.”
