(Some Pleasures and Discomforts of Domestic Life)
June 10 - July 17, 2010
Opening reception: Thursday June 10, 6-9 p.m.
Twenty First/Twenty First Gallery is pleased to present Habitat (Some Pleasures
and Discomforts of Domestic Life), a group exhibition gathering works by Davide
Balula, Marcelline Delbecq, Jeanne Detallante, Ellie Ga, Ines Lechleitner, Justin
Matherly, Christine Rebet, Slavs and Tatars, and Amy Yao.
Following a collaboration with Cumulus Studio in 2009, presenting a selection of
outdoor functional objects designed by artists Liam Gillick, John Bock and Aaron
Young, among others, the design and limited edition furniture gallery pursues its
interest in contemporary art and invites Béatrice Gross, independent curator, to
organize its next exhibition.
Concerned topically with the representation of domesticity, Habitat reflects on
the decorative mission of a design gallery, while examining, en abîme, the
intimate commodification and institutionalization of private interiors. With the
ambivalence of a family reunion, the exhibition conjures up various orders and
disorders of the domestic apparatus: from daily rituals of bliss and labor to
religious narcissism; from visionary corners to staged domestication; from
diminished bodies to literary heroes; from polar confinements to the Gates of
A Temporary Library complements Habitat’s visual investigation: each artist lends
three items from her/his personal library, to constitute a transitory corpus of
printed matters dedicated to domesticity.
Thursday June 24, 7 p.m., Ellie Ga, The Fortunetellers: Arctic Circles (10:10), 2010,
in conjunction with the launching of Ga's latest artist’s book: Three Arctic Booklets
(Ugly Duckling Press, NY, 2010).

Artist Brief – Capricious #11 – The Fashion Issue
Guest Editor, JOFF
As we approach the production of our 11th issue of Capricious, it seems like an appropriate time for a little retrospective viewing on our behalf. As far as we are concerned, we have always been far from addressing “fashion” as most of us know it. Fashion photography has received a lot of space within mainstream printed media and even though we love fashion, we have always made a clear point of not being a fashion magazine.
Fashion photography is dictated within certain parameters wherein the Capricious mindset cannot have its freedom to flourish. We aim to showcase emerging artists whose work falls within the space between fashion photography and fine art photography. However, when we take a step outside of what we typically understand to be the definition of “fashion,” we may reframe it as a whimsical phenomenon that touches and seduces our hearts by creating the illusion of an alternate world. In that sense, “fashion” actually comes very close to the thoughts and visions we represent in the pages of Capricious.
Here, we are interested in fashion as the illusion or dream, which touches our hearts, as the representation of the body and all it’s forms and interpretations, and as the composition of the elements that create that image.
Capricious #11: “The Fashion Issue” will present work of selected photographers who address fashion not as we know it to be represented within the strict rules of editorial fashion photography, but as the larger phenomena of fashion.
**PLEASE NOTE: Credits for clothing design, models, stylists etc. will NOT be included – in keeping with the notion that the selected work is not for fashion advertisement.
We want you to submit 6-12 photographs (more will not be viewed). We accept all formats and all colors. Email your submission (images should be approximately 8x10 inches @ 72 dpi) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Not all submissions will be guaranteed a spot in the coming issue yet capricious will consider your submission for future issues. Please make sure you have model (or any other legally necessary) releases for all submitted work. Capricious has the right to use published material in promotional matters.
Deadline: JULY 5, 2010
Capricious mailing: 302 Bedford Ave #114, Brooklyn, NY 11211

EMMELINE DE MOOIJ
The era of the unexplainable growth of gravity has come. With it an increasing number of sinkholes, cases of arthritis, high blood pressure and an overall mood of pressure. The rocket digs itself and it is here I define my excavation site.
March 6, 2010 - April 16, 2010
Opening & Book Launch: Saturday, March 6th, 7pm - 10pm
Capricious Space proudly presents Dutch artist Emmeline de Mooij’s first solo show in the United States. The exhibition will consist of site-specific sculptural installations, photos, collage and screen printing. She will also be launching her new book, co-published by Capricious, also titled Muddy.
“Gravity grows and my overweight forces me to descend into the ground - behind the skin, beyond daylight. I have signed up for the course 'Cave Diving Inside the Brain'. When I sink up to my knees into the brown substance, I find myself face to face with a troll. She introduces herself as Muddy and tells me about the ultimate wish for weightlessness. I say, 'Yes, I see, but, just these heavy clothes I bought myself'...” –Emmeline de Mooij

THE BRUCE HIGH QUALITY FOUNDATION
The Bruce High Quality Foundation University is pleased to announce Slavs and Tatars’ 79.89.09 lecture at the School of Visual Arts in New York on Friday February 26th at 7pm as an offsite event in the BHQFU’s Edifying performance series. An intimate visual, oral, and written study of two key years (1979 and 1989), 79.89.09 looks at the Iranian Revolution, monobrows, modernity, the fall of communism, the Beach Boys, and mysticism to better understand the world in which we live.
A collaboration with Berlin-based culture bi-annual 032c, 79.89.09 was first presented at Moscow’s Triumph Gallery during the Cycles and Seasons festival in April 2009 before making its way to the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the opening lecture of the 2009-2010 Studium Generale at Amsterdam’s Rietveld Academy.

Printed Matter is pleased to announce a double-book presentation for Kidnapping Mountains and Love Me, Love Me Not: Changed Names, two titles by the collective Slavs and Tatars.
Recently published by Onestar Press as part of their ongoing artists’ book series, Love Me, Love Me Not: Changed Names uses textual diagrams to investigate the nominal tug-of-wars enacted over cities throughout the Eurasian region. As different political entities exercised control over the cities, naming enacts dominion in a way that the artists describe as "entire metropolises caught like children in the spiteful back and forth of a custody battle." Love Me, Love Me Not is part of a group show The Past is a Foreign Country at the Centre of Contemporary Art ’Znaki Czasu’ in Torun, Poland.
Published by Book Works, Kidnapping Mountains is a playful exploration of the muscular stories, wills, and defeat inhabiting the Caucasus region. Comprising two parts: an eponymous section addressing the complexity of languages and identities on the fault line of Eurasia, and Steppe by Steppe Romantics, a restoration of the region’s seemingly reactionary approaches to romance.
