Shanghai, China : OV Gallery , 2013


Scope and Content

Exhibition catalogue for a group show at the OV Gallery, Shanghai, China, on April 7th, 2013 - May 3rd, 2013. 

The show used the term "holding pattern" as a metaphor to examine human behavior - the accumulated actions which we repeat so often that they become second nature to us. Be they good or bad, these habits and patterns become so much part of us that we fail to question them.
