The Untitled Space is pleased to present “ONLY YOU” an exhibition of artwork featuring photography, video and sculpture by artist Indira Cesarine, as well as a special performance inspired by the artwork by dance company Bryn Cohn + Artists. The exhibit will be on view from November 9 – 17th, with the one-time-only performance to coincide with Tribeca Art + Culture Night on November 15th. “ONLY YOU” is a conceptual narrative portrait series chronicling a woman’s emotions as she traverses a metaphorical landscape of love, loss and betrayal. Each artwork is part of the greater narrative of her story and history of suffering that she experienced through her traumatic relationship. The photography and sculpture featured in the series will be premiering for the first time at The Untitled Space. The video art version of “ONLY YOU” premiered in 2010 at an Art Basel Miami exhibition in collaboration with American Friends of The Louvre and Miami Art Museum. Since then, the piece has been screened internationally at venues including London’s Red Bull Studios in collaboration with Graffik Gallery, at an event for Cannes Film Festival in France, and at the Big Screen Plaza in Chelsea, New York. Artwork from “ONLY YOU” will additionally be featured at CICA Museum, South Korea as part of their January exhibition “Portrait 2018.”


I first started working on this series in 2010 and have continued to elaborate on it over the years. It is a very autobiographic series that I directed and photographed, working with a model to reenact sentiments I was feeling at the time. I had suffered from a devastating break up, a relationship that ended with lies, cheating and betrayal. I went from being a strong confident woman to being totally broken and it took me years to recover. This series tells that story. I worked with a model who was a great actress and shot the photographs and videos at the same time. The post-production on the series was extensive. The video art version premiered at Art Basel Miami in 2010 and most of the photographs I only recently started working on again, many of which are premiering for the first time in this exhibit. This series really tells the story not just of my tragic breakup but that of many women who have been abused and betrayed by the people they love, and how difficult it can be to process those emotions. I am really looking forward to the original choreography by Bryn Cohn + Artists inspired by the series. I will be seeing it for the first time along with the audience on November 15th!” – Indira Cesarine
