Claire Fontaine: Fighting Gravity

Fighting Gravity aims to approach the threatening magma deposited inside our lives by the recent economical crisis. Since the blatant failure of the mechanisms that supported the legitimacy of liberal capitalism was accompanied by a general impunity and a lack of public protests, we are left with the feeling that the only law that remains un-negotiable is the law of gravity.

Fighting Gravity is itself a 'double exhibition' taking place at the same time in Moscow and London, questioning the meaning of opening a gallery with the same name and the same owner in two cities.
