fragile spaces

by uzwi

Versions of this aesthetic have been playing to packed houses & across disciplines since the 1970s. Its power was revelatory: it sustained itself between mystification & demystification. With that edge blunted–both by the normalisation of the aesthetic & in terms of the dwindling number of disclosable individual spaces–what’s the point ? Edge zones are fragile. Try to fix them, they vanish in front of your eyes. The next stop here is a kitsch of edge.
