AT THE OPENING OF ATHI-PATRA RUGA'S FUTURE WHITE WOMEN OF AZANIA SAGA

I snapped these last week at Whatiftheworld at the opening of Athi’s new solo show. This one was a bit of a family affair so I’m not gonna go on and on about how mind-blowingly amazing it is to behold because some of y’all skeptic skatties are gonna assume I’m biased anyway. Thankfully the show does not at all need my help; it’s pretty fucking awesome. The pieces will be up until the 8th of Feb, so if you haven’t seen it yet I recommend you pay the gallery a visit. For those who might not be familiar with Athi’s technique; those are hand embroidered tapestries (obvs except the photos, stained glass piece and installation), and you need to do yourself a favour and stand in front of one to fully appreciate their awesomeness. For now though, enjoy the images.
AND LATER FOR AN INTIMATE CELEBRATORY DINNER AT 'THE DINING ROOM', WHICH BY THE WAY IS AN AWESOME LITTLE VENUE OPENING UP THIS DECEMBER.
