Athi-Patra Ruga: 'The Works'

Unknown Artist at FRED London Ltd

Through craft, performance, video, sculpture, and photography, Athi-Patra Ruga explores ideas of displacement, dislocation, misidentification and misconceptions in relation to race, gender, and sexuality. Political concerns are the heart of his practice as well as the balance of power or struggle between the artist, subject, and viewer. The exhibition explores the boundaries between fashion, performance and photography – as well as notions of masculinity, taste, acceptance, convention, and the status quo. 'The Works' comprises new tapestries and a selection of recent photographs and is Ruga’s first solo show in Europe.

19 February - 21 March
