Gallery 1C03 is pleased to launch:
an online, downloadable pdf publication for our current exhibition, Not the Camera, But the Filing Cabinet: Performative Body Archives in Contemporary Art. Designed by Susan Chafe, the illustrated catalogue includes a curatorial essay by Noor Bhangu, poetry by Sharanpal Ruprai and a critical response by Dunja Kovačević. In her text, curator Bhangu positions herself as the 11th artist in this provocative exhibition, noting “what is central to my thinking on is my position as an Indian-born woman and a settler of colour. Culturally and politically marked as a double other – a woman and a brown immigrant – I have slowly begun to gather the ways in which my similarities and differences from other and othered bodies around me have been a point of connection and solidarity.
