EXHIBITION: 6th October - 3rd November 2018

PRIVATE VIEW: October 6th, 12:30 – 2.00 pm

50 Golborne is delighted to present 'Chromatics', an exhibition by French-Beninese visual artist Emo de Medeiros. 'Chromatics' is grounded in the necessity of a radical fight against racism, "radical" meaning that the fight must also be symbolic and conceptual, aiming at destroying racialization mechanisms that create automatic thinking and a mainly subconscious linguistic "apartheid". 

The basis of the piece is a program randomly combining 200 three-to-five-letters most common nouns in the English language, thus generating 10 000 possible word couples. The program then randomly adds the words "black" and "white" thus generating 80 000 possible four words paragraphs or "stanzas".
