Athi-Patra Ruga’s Interior/Exterior (Coming Soon) on Vimeo

WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to present Athi-Patra Ruga’s new exhibition ‘Interior/Exterior ⁄ Dramatis Persona’, a Saga in Two Parts.

As a prologue to the exhibition a series of video conversations with the artist, discussing his process, will be released online.

In the series, Ruga reflects on the tradition of stained-glass artistry and its theological origin as a story-telling medium. He uses the weight of this prestige as a catalyst to attain iconic status for characters extracted from his well-established pantheon, beautifying them as deities. Part 1 is an act of remembrance and memorialisation, an ongoing undertaking of the artist to reify figures erased from the historical archive and lost to public imagination, as seen in his previous exhibition ‘Queens in Exile 2014 – 2017’ and his series ‘The BEATification of Feral Benga (2017 – )’.

Turkey’s Interior Ministry issued a circular on April 22 on measures that will be taken against the novel coronavirus during the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.
