Seventeen Gallery presents "Diamond Grill" by Oliver Laric — London, UK
The exhibition title is taken from the 1996 book of the same name by Fed Wah, which is a series of writings about his ChineseHYPHENCanadian upbringing. In Diamond Grill, Wah emphasizes the hypen as it opens up new combinations, a space for 'mongrels and hybrids' and those 'living in the hyphen'. Homi Bhabha states that the hyphen 'gives rise to something different, something new and unrecognizable, a new area of negotiation of meaning and representation.' Exhibition runs from 12 OCT until 12 NOV, 2011.
