Sean Branagan, Past Echoes
In 1890 house became a home to Marino Benejam Ferrer, Menorcean cartoonist, who's works are known worldwide. As an integral part of the house’s own history, art continues to be a part of our journey.
- From contemporary art pieces that embellish walls of rooms and lobby, to more classical pieces like Michelangelo’s Pieta, that greatly inspired a mural in our dining area, shaped prints for Room Brochures and Breakfast Menus and embroideries for our Room Signs. As a representation of fragility and transitoriness of life itself, it stands as a main emblem for our name and concept.
When Fragile first opened in 2016 as a Bar and a Contemporary Art Gallery, its prime focus was to create a multidisciplinary space, where one can appreciate art in a relaxed atmosphere with drinks and music, rather than in the sanctuary silence of more formal galleries.
It is dedicated to supporting and showcasing established and emerging artists from across Europe who are acclaimed in their fields and work in a range of mediums, from photography to painting.
