Candice Lin @ Gasworks Gallery

22 September 2016 - 11 December 2016

The exhibition explores how histories of slavery and colonialism have been shaped by human attraction to particular colours, tastes, textures and drugs. Focusing on how the desire to wear, ingest or become enraptured by certain substances preceded the will to trade them as commercial goods, A Body Reduced to Brilliant Colour, by Candice Lin traces the materialist urges at the root of colonial violence.
