Fragile, the special touring exhibition in Africa provides a comprehensive overview of the multi-faceted and different forms of artistic expression in the practice of the acclaimed photographer. The exhibition attempts to show fragility as strength, not a weakness, taking its titular references from Tillmans music band in the 1990s. The exhibition includes a wide range of works, from large-scale prints to sculptural objects, video projections, and music, to his curatorial work in making the exhibition. Comprising over 200 works created between 1986 and 2018, the display features framed and unframed photographs in various formats, and also his table installation truth study centre, video works and numerous publication projects. In each venue where the exhibition is shown, there would be a specific installation which reacts to the specifics of the exhibition space and its architecture and environment. The tour includes a catalog in English and French, which will be complemented by a local contribution at each venue, authored by Christine Eyene, N’Goné Fall, Bart van der Heide and Ashraf Jamal, as well as Khwezi Gule and Neo Muyanga for the Johannesburg edition.
