Publication release and reading
Minia Biabiany and Imri Sandström
Friday 17 June 2016
6.30pm and onwards

“(Bindestrecket i all-männing är en vild rot som tvingar en över randen. En försvunnen rot, som håller en på plats.)”

“(le trait d’union des lieux-communs est une racine folle, qui vous pousse par-delà les lisères. Une racine en-allée, qui vous maintient au lieu.)”

the diffracted dash is a collaboration between Minia Biabiany and Imri Sandström. It started as a sharing around the book Philosophie de la Relation – poésie en étendue by Édouard Glissant, and its Swedish translation, Relationens filosofi – Omfångets poesi. Talking back and forth through these texts and languages continuously opened up different meanings and connections. This scattering and linking of variations and details formed a conversation on language, translation, colonization, opacity and traces. Parts of this conversation have taken the shape of a risograph publication that will be presented during the evening.

A reading of the diffracted dash will take place in conjunction with the closing of the exhibition Spelling by Minia Biabiany, and as a satellite to the artistic research project of Imri Sandström entitled Howe Across Reading – Performing the Past.

Doors open at 6.30pm
Reading starts at 7pm
There will be drinks and Luca’s halloumi on the grill from 7.30pm and onwards.
Come and join us for a season finale under the stars!
