Athi-Patra Ruga at In Situ Paris

In Situ Gallery, presents the exhibition A Land Without A People… For A People Without A Land by WHATIFTHEWORLD artist Athi-Patra Ruga. The exhibition runs from 10 September until 31 October 2015 at In Situ, Paris, France.

Azania is a borderless country, one without geography. “A Land without a People for a People without a Land”. Azania is a utopian region characterized by fantasy, resistance, affirmation and frivolity. A kingdom for outcasts seeking refuge or a stage to express themselves. A region adorned with tropical colors, which is populated by characters whose identities are in a state of transformation. Athi Patra-Ruga constructs, through protean writing, a universe where South African and odd aesthetic traditions meet, where ancestral mythologies are a part of festive artifacts, with cheap accessories and an irresistible insouciance.
