Frida Orupabo,
Cables to Rage
@ Gavin Brown's

This is nothing
short of a mobile
repository, a litany 
of residua, a
voluptuous trail of
black continuity,
pyramid schemata
as densely inscribed
as any book of 
the dead, not so
much an archive
as an ark, a borne
witness to the
singularity that
is blackness.

Key reference: 

The exhibition: 
Is Oslo-based Frida 
 first solo 
with Gavin Brown's 
enterprise, featuring 
a collection of serially
presented images —
some ‘found’, some
constructed, extracted,
or emptied out. 

We name a thing 
‘dance’ when 
the normal, 
the pedestrian, 
becomes expressive 
or supernormal 
@nemiepeba is 
a dancer. Check 
the thread to see 
how she’s moving 
us, forward.”
