I would say that the three characteristics of minor art are: not the deterritorialization of language, but the development of one’s own personal, highly idiosyncratic language; not so much the connection of the individual to a political immediacy, but the acknowledgement that form, which is art’s primary duty, is always already political; and definitely not the collective assemblage

Good Weather North Little Rock, Arkansa, USA 06/03/2017 – 07/29/2017

Sucked into the vacuum, low- and high-relief marble sculptures and cut-out floor works could be artifacts from Fin Simonetti’s red pen drawings. A dismembered dog—its parts strewn throughout—become a vivid signifier for the physical, psychological, and political destruction of the body. The head of the muzzled dog lies heavy on the ground, it’s caulked leash tracing an unstable line

Quack quack quack. Quack. Quack. Quack quack quack quack quack. Quack quack. Quack. Quack quack. 1′ 8″ Duck (2017) A matter-of-factness sits on the storeroom shelves: a series of wicker woven busts of friends in Dylan Spaysky’s current milieu; each portrait with individualizing facial and cranial details. These substantial visible traits dovetail with an unassuming
