> DESCRIPTION

James Fuentes LLC is proud to announce Agathe Snow’s first solo exhibition No Need To Worry, the  Apocalypse Has Already Happened... when it couldn't get any worse, it just got a little better. On March  11th in lieu of an opening Agathe will lead a parade that will start at the East River and end at the  gallery; participants will enter the exhibition space, which will be transformed into an endoskeletal whale  sculpture.  Throughout the duration of the show, there will be a several key events and performances,  the primary one being a Pawn Shop for the exchange of gold and silver. The end result will be an unfolding narrative; sculptures made of gold, silver and detritus from the neighborhood will be produced throughout the course of the exhibition.  

 

 

What if New York was completely flooded by water 

What if the water receded 

What if some people survived 

What if I survived 

What would be left behind 

What if all we had left was the memory 

What if all we had left was the skeleton of our city 

Well I would start it all again 

I would live where it all started Downtown 

I would live in a whale carcass left behind 

On St. James Place 

And I would go back to my secret places, hideouts 

I would nurture the memory 

I would connect with the people left behind 

I would open a Pawn Shop and exchange gold 

I would start a forum for rebuilding 

I would keep in mind where we fucked up originally 

I would try not to make the same mistakes 

That time is now 

Where are you? 

I am here. 

 

Agathe Snow has participated in group exhibitions at Migros Museum, Bonner Kunstverein, and White Columns.  She has actively collaborated recently with artists including Rita Ackermann, Emily Sunblad and Nate Lowman.  Two of her major collaborative works are Feed the Troops on the Move, an ongoing project wherein a clandestine restaurant becomes a setting for installation and performance, and Stamina, a dance party that culminated in 2005 as a 24-hour dance marathon that over 150 artists participated in.
