Watchlist: Athi-Patra Ruga

Athi-Patra Ruga ist ein sĂĽdafrikanischer KĂĽnstler, der sich mit Mode und Performance beschäftigt, “exposing and subverting the body in relation to structure, ideology and politics”. Zu seiner Luftballon-Aktion: “The 4-hour performance begins with the ritualistic blowing of balloons and the dressing of the all 5 performers that make up the population of The White Women Of Azania thus far, the performance will culminate in a 60 minute procession from the Drill Hall on Plein St to the Standard Bank Art Gallery on Anderson St in the Johannesburg CBD. This is a continuation of the artist’s exploration alternative rituals as a means of intervention, something that is a huge influence also in each of the artist’s performances. In creating these rituals, the artist performs a kind of Jacobinistic purge of the staid and unimaginative in all aspects of existence.” Via
