Yoshinori Niwa solo show: That Language Sounds Like a Language”
10 November - 21 December 2017, London
Yoshinori Niwa’s second solo exhibition at Edel Assanti converges four of Niwa’s recent performance / film works in an examination of the boundaries of “publicness”, nationhood and the mechanisms of group identity. That Language Sounds Like a Language focuses on the question of how we define our collective identity: is it by shared political views, or mutual identification with a nation? Is it the language we speak, or a shared understanding of historical events?
