NICK FAGAN: MOURN

A SOLO-EXHIBITION BY NICK FAGAN

WINNER OF THE NAPOLEON 2017 OPEN CALL

THIS EXHIBITION WILL BE HELD AT 990 SPRING GARDEN STREET

MOURN is a recent body of work about suicide. Fagan’s paintings and sculptures consider the different roles people play in personal tragedies. Each work looks at a new facet of the experience, from personally dealing with his own attempted suicide to witnessing his friends who were successful at the task. At every turn, Fagan expresses a different view from the various characters and collaged narratives that arise out of each suicide as it unfolds.

F(L)AT

Napoleon and Tiger Strikes Asteroid are pleased to present F(L)AT, featuring artworks by members of the artist-run gallery, SOIL, located in Seattle, WA. F(L)AT – Flat or Fat, is a response to the complications of shipping artwork across the country. The members of SOIL were tasked with creating artwork that could ship flat and then be fattened once it arrives at the gallery for installation. The work ranges from flat paper that fold into sculptural objects, 2D renderings of 3D spaces, photographs with hinges that become a sculpture, and fabric pieces that take up unexpected volume in the space. This exhibition is the second half of an exchange, started in March 2016 when Napoleon and TSA exhibited at SOIL.
