Amy Zacha, Rebecca Danne and Shannon Langford
Artist Daniel Savage has exhibited his latest
work at the Belconnen Community Centre's
gallery. Given the inclusive nature of the
venue, his show No offense, but . . . ,is
appropriate with its focus on issues for
people who represent variously marginalised
groups such as disability, gay, lesbian,
transgender, mixed race, Aboriginal, Muslim
and people who suffer mental illness. No
offense, but . . . addresses the way words are
used to mark people as outsiders, resulting
in dumb and insulting, personal questions
such as How Aboriginal are you? Who is the
man in the relationship? and Does your
husband make you wear that?
