rugas

As cicatrizes não tem personalidade. Não são como a pele da gente: não mostram a idade ou alguma doença, a palidez ou o bronzeado. Não tem poros, pelos ou rugas. São uma espécie de fronha, que protege e esconde oque houver por baixo. Por isso as criamos. Porque temos algo a esconder.
—  Garota, Interrompida.

[…]
A fissarle la bocca, socchiude lo sguardo
in se stessa: nessuno può osare uno scatto.
Molti uomini sanno il suo ambiguo sorriso
o la ruga improvvisa. Se quell’uomo c’è stato
che la sa mugolante, umiliata d’amore,
paga giorno per giorno, ignorando di lei
per chi viva quest’oggi.
Sorride da sola
il sorriso più ambiguo camminando per strada.

- Cesare Pavese, Un ricordo, frammento

South African artist Athi-Patra Ruga has won the prestigious Standard Bank Young Artist Award for 2015.

Born in Umtata in the Eastern Cape, in 1984, Athi-Patra Ruga is a multi-disciplinary artist that uses a mixture of performance art, tapestry, fashion and many more mediums - including his own body, to express and explore the border-zones between fashion, performance and contemporary art.

His work, which is coated with multi-layered cultural under and overtones, exposes and subverts the body in relation to structure, ideology and politics. Ruga has been exhibiting work since 2006 and has had his work showcased at several prominent art events and galleries including Dak’Art - Biennale of African Contemporary Art,
the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, South Africa, the 55th La Biennale di Venezia, and MU Foundation in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Most recently, Ruga was included in the Phaidon book ‘Younger Than Jesus’, a directory of over 500 of the world’s best artists under the age of 33.

Currently residing in Johannesburg, Athi-Patra Ruga is represented by WHATIFTHEWORLD gallery.

Athi-Patra Ruga's artwork is featured as part of Uncertain Terms, a group exhibition showcasing the work of fourteen artists from across four continents. The exhibition brings together a group of artists who engage with changing dynamics, either in response to formal issues of materiality within their practice, or as a reaction to broader socio-political themes. Uncertain Terms is on from November 27, 2014 to January 24, 2015.

ATHI-PATRA RUGA

Born Umtata, South Africa in 1984 and lives and works in both Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Exploring the border-zones between fashion, performance and contemporary art, Athi-Patra Ruga makes work that exposes and subverts the body in relation to structure, ideology and politics. Bursting with eclectic multicultural references, carnal sensuality and a dislocated undercurrent of humor, his performances, videos, costumes and photographic images create a world where cultural identity is no longer determined by geographical origins, ancestry or biological disposition, but is increasingly becoming a hybrid construct. A Utopian counter-proposal to the sad dogma of the division between mind and body, sensuality and intelligence, pop culture, craft and fine art, his works expresses the eroticism of knowledge and reconciles the dream with experience.
