Shiraz Bayjoo // Apart Bez, Tu Korek : Ed Cross Fine Art at Clerkenwell Gallery

16 June - 11 July 2021

Apart Bez, Tu Korek grapples with the visual language of European status imposed on native populations and reconfigured by Bayjoo materially and conceptually. The exhibition’s archival genealogies stem from Malagasy culture as well as Bayjoo’s own Mauritian heritage; its Creole title, meaning ‘everything’s fine except for the fuckery’, wryly illuminates the exploitation which brought the region’s linguistic diversity into being.
