Dan Halter and Athi-Patra Ruga in Crossing Night

Dan Halter and Athi-Patra Ruga are included in the exhibition ‘Crossing Night’ – which takes place across various locations in Oaxaca, Mexico. The exhibition is hosted by IDRIS NAIM A.C. and the National Institute of Fine Arts, Mexico.

“Crossing Night looks comparatively at societal relationships with death in Southern Africa and in Mexico as an entry point to a broader search for shared ways of relating to history in the present in these two postcolonial regions.

The project touches on the fragility and finitude of human experience, the relationship between violence and death, the ethics of how we relate to corpses, our rituals of life, death and the afterlife, our connections with our ancestors, and how our will for form is at the last instance a will to be remembered.”

‘Crossing Night’ takes place from 4 November 2018 to 19 February 2019.
