PERFORMATIVE LECTURE AND CONVERSATION WITH ALVIN LI
Asymmetry HQ, 102a Albion Drive, London E8 4LY
Please join us for a book launch for Chang Yuchen’s Coral Dictionary Vol.1: 2019-2022. Yuchen will present a performative lecture on her feral literacy, while demonstrating how to read, use, and dance with this newly-published dictionary. The second half of the evening will feature a conversation between Alvin Li and Yuchen, where they will discuss practices of translation and lexicography in relation to their recent collaborative project as Librarians-in-Residence at Asymmetry.
Including 216 words that Yuchen has translated with fragments of coral bodies, Coral Dictionary Vol.1: 2019-2022 is a tool book customly designed for one person’s need in her ongoing endeavor of making a language. The dictionary includes an introduction by Alvin Li, and is published by Gong Press in two versions. Limited copies of Coral Dictionary Vol.1, 2019-2022 will be available at the event. They can also be purchased online at https://www.gongpress.art/.
