Ruth Ige - A Place Apart, City Gallery, Wellington

28 May 2020 — 2 Aug 2020

If you are in Wellington between May & August please take the time to visit the City Gallery and see A Place Apart, a show from Christina Pataialii and Ruth Ige.

Ruth Ige responds to ideas surrounding blackness and representation. She creates rich, hypnotic portraits of imagined subjects. Their bodies blur between blue, watery dimensions, and are at once in our midst as they are in a realm of their own. Through a form of veiling, she evokes the empowering qualities that mystery can bestow.

Through the medium of painting, A Place Apart considers the shifting terms that define place and embodiment. In the limbo of unstable forms, both artists question the control of dominant narratives and the politics of belonging to a particular space and time.
