I WAS HER AND SHE WAS ME AND THOSE

WE MIGHT BECOME     KITSO LYNN LELLIOTT

02.09 – 04.11.2017

ROOM is pleased to announce the solo presentation of a multimedia body of work by Kitso Lynn Lelliott, titled I was her and she was me and those we might become.

 

In the presentation, the artist elaborates on her interrogation of the philosophical underpinnings and ontological construct of race that emerged during the European Imperial era, which in turn have resulted in the production of an ”Othering” using hegemonic colonial languages. Her research further delves into the perpetuation of idea of “racially marked beings” with the associated violent omissions, erasure and deletion of knowledges carried in diverse languages.
