"601Artspace is delighted to present Two Grains of Wheat, an exhibition that explores how contemporary artists engage with spirituality and religious symbolism in their work, especially in times of political upheaval. The exhibition encompasses performative gestures, devotional objects, monuments, ruins, and text-based works that use religious references to promote ideals of justice. The artworks expand our understanding of faith, spirituality, and religion–related but distinct concepts that inform both collective and individual identity".
I will be showing my multi-channel video installation, Among Graves and Ruins, thanks to the support of Artis.
