Yazan Khalili | "On the Other Side of the Law"

Lawrie Shabibi is pleased to present “On the Other Side of the Law”, Yazan Khalili’s first solo exhibition in Dubai. Based in Ramallah, Khalili explores issues of authority and bureaucracy as a result of laws enacted by Israel that allow certain individuals rights and privileges, whilst denying those same rights and privileges to others. Assigning people into different groups and designating areas into categories politicize every place and act. "On the Other Side of the Law" presents works that delve into these themes, making visible the unseen divisions. Together the exhibition provides a sense of refusal of exchangeability - the impossibility of being substitutable into a particular system or order of things.
