'A WORLD WHICH IS FRAGILE’ by Markus Soukup, 20 January - 20 March 2017.
A WORLD WHICH IS FRAGILE is a site specific animation project that the artist developed for the net-based Widget Art Gallery. The gif-animation comprises of a 2D and typographic animation loop contemplating about the current situation [and trying to find hope] in a time characterized by tension, conflict, societal regression and climate change.
Markus Soukup is a media artist living and working in London.
Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket (suitable for all mobile platforms). Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
